A few weeks ago my boyfriend and I headed down into the Rift Valley to visit the ancient site of Olorgesailie. Turning off the bumpy Magadi road onto the white dust track that leads to the site was a lovely relief and as the dust flew up around us I was reminded of my childhood family trip to the wonderful place.
We spent the afternoon wandering around the site, looking at the bones and ancient tools first discovered in 1942.
A lovely little cat accompanied us for dinner!
Beautiful Birds surrounded the banda
We drove up the nearby mountain, getting a wicked view of the valley cast in evening shadows.
As night fell, the sky lit up with streaks of clouds.
At night the heavens opened up revealing millions of starts illuminating the night sky.
This trip reminded me of how much natural beauty surrounds us here in Kenya and how much I love exploring it.
