A River Runs Through It. No, Really.
5/8/05. Eldoret, near Uganda border.
New Naiberi River Campsite has the most astounding bar so far. It won't be finished for a few months, but it's already a jaw-dropper.
1. It's huge.
2. There's a 200 metre cave-like tunnel that leads to it.
3. There's a river running through the middle.
4. It's really huge.
5. Did I let on about the size of the thing?
Ash allows me to spend as much money as I like in his bar
I spend the day in the rather nice town sorting out my water-in-fuel-tank issue. Once again the moto is back to peak performance and running like a particularly saucy dream, perhaps involving Maria Whittaker (remember her? Dumb as a pencil but topheavy like a prize hog on a unicycle) and half a kilo of Lurpak. And a golden retriever.
East Africa is shaping up to be a gigantic playground compared to the West. Proper facilities! Sensible weather! Africa's finest beer! (Tusker, according to American Men's Journal magazine).
