Rusinga Island tour

To get to Rusinga, Tom Mboya’s birthplace, from Nairobi, one could take da bus to Mbita or fly to Homa Bay then take a van or for the very adventurous a flight to Kisumu then a van to Lwanda Kotieno then the ferry to Mbita from where you cross to the Island. It’s a small Island with very scenic landscape, Eco-lodges and nice beaches.

if you can’t go to the beach, we can bring the beach to you

fish cages in the distance

I have no name for this one

who said coastal environment cannot be created by the lakeside?

Tish would call this window, maybe?

there is a ‘ghost’ city that appears at night and disappears in the morn’

    I could be mistaken, but photo three is a menu holder — n’est-ce pas?

    The object with no name seems to be what we call “Staubfรคnger” in German. That means “dust catcher” because if you leave such objects standing around in your apartment, they catch dust. ๐Ÿ™‚ Or maybe this one is actually a menu holder? The design principle is that form follows function but if the function is very marginal, the form may start to develop in all kinds of directions. This increases the surface area, making such things ideal as dust catchers, so catching dust tends to become the primary and de facto function. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Looks like a nice place to relax.
