Day 38 – Quick excursion into the country
One of the persons we met suggested an outing to a community about 75 km of Nairobi, so I jumped at the excuse of starting at 5 am (thus missing the fierce Nairobi traffic), and together with a car full of cheerful ladies (Charleen, Margaret, and another of the lady investors) we drove into the eastern shoulder of the African Rift Valley. It is a textbook example of faulted blocks stepping away from the rift valley, with good prospects for groundwater. Unfortunately once again we stumbled against the “we have no money” and “maybe a wealthy “American” like me could give them the money?” syndromes. Ay, ay, ay, ay.
