Mother & Daughter-In -Law Adventures Part3

Mombasa, Kenya

We woke up early yesterday morning and went straight to the beach!

Spent the entire day on the sand. We walked up and down picking shells. I found a beautiful piece of white coral that I will put up in the restroom as a decoration. Sandra has made mirrors with sea shells and drift wood and I want to make one too. So now I have everything I need.

Today we went to the city of Malindi, that's about 45 min from Kilifi. We met up with some of Sandra's friends. They use to be missionaries and now serve as special pioneers. We had some lunch at this Italian place and had such a good time with them even though it was only for an hour or so. They love to talk and tell stories and it was nice hearing their stories of Kyran and his brothers when they we're young.

Talking to the Brother was refreshing. It was like talking to brother E. Raymond! Lol well that's who he reminded me of :)

He said it was hard to imagine the boys married because he remembers them during their teens! Hmmm...... ;)

After we left them we went shopping. Malindi has lot unique crafts mens. So there is stuff here that you can't really find anywhere else.

There are many Italians in this city and so it has lots of flavor.
Oh, and I even found my favorite cheap Italian red wine! :) haven't been able to find it in Nairobi!

Time was running out and so we had to leave. We are going back on Tue.

Back at grandmas, me and Sandra prepared lunch for tomorrow. We are going to Tsavo national park.

On a different note Grandmas brother who lives in South Africa came today!!

Everyone says he looks like Kyran, but he is in his 70s so I can't really tell. He does have colored eyes just like KY KY. He is such a nice fellow very down to earth and likes to tell stories, sounds like Kyran :)

Speaking of stories BBC did a documentary on his past work. He used to wk for the government before Kenya got its freedom. Ever heard of the Mau Mau? Look it up :) interesting and sad story.

Anyway since it was a special occasion we had crab and lobster. Fresh from the sea I might add!

Later on we left brother and sister to catch up one the 'good ol' days'.

That was today! I'm exhausted.

Night yal!

Love drea.
