January 18th


We had a great time with Ben and his family. They were very nice and cooked up an excellent feast for both dinner and breakfast. We had interesting conversations about politics and current events. It was hard to leave this morning.

Arthur stops to reconsider the amount of gear he is carrying on his bike.

Nice looking cactus. Rode through the rift valley (divergent plate boundary where Africa is ripping apart) today. It was beautiful.

On the climb up to the town we slept in near Kijabe Kenya. This mountain is one of many active volcanoes in the rift valley. It is named Mt. Longonot and erupted in the 1860s.

In town tonight I tried a new food called Mukimo. It’s a mix of potatoes and vegetables and tastes great!
