John is te real talent with words...here is the email he sent to his family and friends:
Monday morning third day in Kenya and the body has just started to catch up with a 50 degree temp change and an 8 hour time adjustment. Weather hasn't changed much, it is the dry season so rain is non existent and sun is relentless; temp hovers between 30 to 35 daily. Our treehouse has been comfy and kinda fun, although we must be careful what we leave on the counter because the monkeys are thieves and will steel at first chance. Never before have I used the oven as a pantry to keep food safe.
Beaches here are beautiful with some of the finest sand I have ever seen, almost blows around more like dust than normal sand. Locals call it silver sand. The breeze here has been an amazing surprise, we have met some folks who have spent the last 2 weeks here and have sailed every day. Today we walked the beach for 2hours then kited for another 2 after the wind came up. We had a hard time figuring out how to walk around, everyone is selling some thing, and they won't leave you alone - bit of a pain but we are getting better at saying piss off politely. Apparently this place is usually much more crowded with European tourists but because of some recent terrorist attacks people are staying away. Found a beach-front-cheap-place to stay, a little run down but clean and apparently safe. This is an amazing country if you follow the safety rules and the people are some of the nicest I have ever met. We have a great tuk tuk driver that comes when we call and takes us everywhere we want. His name is Alfred, slip him a beer or a pack of smarties and he loves us. Thanks for listening will keep you posted.
