Day 19 – Nairobi 

So today has to be up there with one of the most surreal days ever. Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka, former vice president of Kenya invited me to his office in Karen so I headed over there late morning. Stephen had randomly caught wind of my story in its first week and said that he would like to meet me. I wasn’t sure what to expect, maybe a handshake and someone from the local radio station but no!! He warmly greeted me and asked me about my experiences and why I am doing it, then he said we will go and meet the media. We entered into the outside area of a restaurant where there must have been 40 odd journalists, five cameras. They were all from national TV news and newspapers. This was crazy!!! Then he told me to fire away, there I was cameras pointing at me, microphones below me giving a talk on what I am doing and why, to Kenyan national TV !! Stephan had very kindly donated 100,000 Kenyan shillings to the Lewa Children’s Home. After we had finished we had a picture together before I went to grab some lunch. Did that just happen?
I headed back to Runda and exhausted from earlier relaxed for the rest of the day with Neel and his flatmates. It had been amazing been in Nairobi but tomorrow I start my journey again to the coast, Six 45km marathons on the trot with shin splints…. can’t wait
