Losing my camera, and getting into 1st fight!

Mombasa, Kenya

It was hard work getting up at 4:15 to get ready to catch the bus to Mombasa for 5:30am, it was only an hour late, which was pretty irritating and only arrived when I decided to go to the loo, without realizing that I had to pay for it! Thus a group of guys grabbed me and tried to drag me into their office. I was petrified and fuming. Eventually they let me go after I lashed out at them and kicked them as I didn’t have any money on me in order to bribe them to leave me alone. My god I hate Arusha! Everyone just seems violent and aggressive so I was delighted when I finally managed to get away and jump on the bus.

During the 10 hour bus journey 2 ladies decided that they had enough of carrying their children so decided to put them on my lap for a while, strange but true. They were SO cute!

The bus this time wasn’t business-class but pretty rustic and battered but a lot quicker than previous buses which we were grateful for stopping at virtually every bus-stop on the way.

When we arrived we managed to find somewhere to stay pretty quickly but I left my camera in the taxi, so that was frustrating, but it restored my faith in humanity when it was returned on Wednesday morning!
