This was just the holiday I needed. Getting away from it all. Not having to take care of anyone. Not having to think of anyone and just enjoying myself.
In the first picture I was ready at home waiting for the taxi to the airport.
Lamu must be the only airport without a road and a parking lot I know off. You walk down to the dock and take one of the small water taxis. 2nd pic shows my first few of Lamu town. I however stayed 3km down the coast in Shela.
3rd pic. My ride from the airport
PLEASE NOTE I AM POSTING THIS FROM MY MOBILE AND SOMEHOW I CAN ONLY ATTACH 1 PICTURE AT A GO. THEY ARE COMING UP BACKWARDS. FIRST PICTURE IS LAST HERE
Photo 4 & 5 my home for the next 3 days. I spend a lot of time reading on that balcony.
Photo 6 - 8 more pictures of Fatuma's Tower. It actually is a historical building. A Nobel woman lived there in the late 19th century with her 5 slaves. 80 years later it was bought by the current owner and transformed into this beautiful place and yoga retreat
One morning I walked to Lamu along the shore. Photo 9-12 are impressions from Lamu town
The next morning I walked on the 12km long Shela beach and admired the Fort (actually a new Nobel Hotel, not an old building) and the sand dunes. See picture 13-15
And the last evening I treated myself to a sunset cruise on a dhow. These smaller dhows are the traditional fishing boats. Still very much in use. For trips to the middle east and India they used bigger ones. The remaining pictures are from this evening
Wow that place looks amazing I can see how that would make a most enjoyable time away from your everyday life. We all need that. Something totally different to recharge our batteries. How in the heck did you ever find this place? Was it recommended to you? I don't think I would ever think this one up by myself.
The sunset looks gorgeous. I think I could of sat there for hours just watching it enfold. Are you back yet?
All the best to you my friend. Thinking about you. 1378 days ago
