Jambo everyone! Habari ya mchana? (How are you htis afternoon? You all reply mzuri sana!) Have been in a rubbish mood all week cos it has been raining and raining and raining some more! Today is goregous though, perfect blue sky and roasting.
So Emily and arrived in Watamu on Friday afternoon to beautiful sunshine and I thought "Whoop, sunbathing here I come!" She left on Sunday morning to move onto Lamu, so I have been alone since then, which was cool cos I planned on sitting on a beach the whole time! Problem is that this is a tourist resort that caters mostly for Italians and Germans, so the high season isn't till July. Therefore all the big hotels are closed (gone was my idea of sitting by their pools for the week), as are most of the shops and even the places to eat! It is also empty, I was the only mzungu here till maybe yesterday, which was a wierd feeling, but to those who have been worried about me being on my own, DO NOT FEAR! I am ok, in fact I'm greeted like an old friend by many people now, especially in the little cafe where I have breakfast everyday and generally just hang out. So it hasn't quite been the week I planned, in fact on Sunday I was bored out of my mind... But kinda got used to it now, and I am meeting Emily and Boz tomorrow to get a bus back to Diani for our last weekend before everyone goes home and I start the next part of the adventure with Rocky. This time in a week I will be in Nairobi with the godfather, can't wait, it's been years since I last saw him!!!!!
Only problem about being alone is that it hit me that my darling Rachel is home in 9 days, and I MISS HER!!! It has ben 5 months since I last saw her and I don't wanna wait another 2... Got very sad but then got over it! (That's how much you mean to me! Haha...)
Not much else to add, cos not really been doing much at all, so will sign off here, happy birthday to the many people who had/ will have birthdays recently, sorry I can't be home to send you love but it is from Kenya, therefore way better!
Miss you all and lots of love...
