Day 18 – Nairobi

Day off, I’m not going to lie, it has been tough since Naivasha, there was a time when I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to go on because the pains in my leg were too great however I know after yesterday’s run I can complete it.
I went to get a sports massage to see if that could ease the pain in my leg, it was very relaxing but not sure if it did much. I headed back to the house for some lunch before I got a call from Sam who I had met in Kitale, she was down in Nairobi with her family, and asked if I wanted to go for a coffee with them, of course! They very kindly came and picked me up and took me into the centre of Nairobi somewhere near Westgate where we sat and had a smoothie and some cake and then turned into some supper too. I had been planning to head off down to the coast tomorrow but when you get a call from Kenya’s former Vice President asking you to come and meet him, you don’t turn that down, so tomorrow I am going to meet him in Karen. After supper, we said our goodbyes and they very kindly drove me back to my place. It has been amazing seeing them all over the past three weeks and hope to see them all very soon.
