I really enjoyed watching the videos of Kilimanjaro but it has left me feeling like I need to achieve something more with my life. Maybe I will arrange a trip in the future. My closest friend has already said that he would be up for the challenge.
Moving on to my next location was a straight flight east heading for the coast. The flight took me over lots of national park. I enjoy watching documentaries and nature programs although I don’t think I would be entirely comfortable sharing a landscape with wild lions or elephants. The chance to see them in the wild would no doubt be unforgettable. I would just want to be able to return home to somewhere safe afterwards.
Mombasa isn’t somewhere I know lots about. My only impression of it is that it is a rather violent and dangerous place. All towns and cities have they good and bad districts however, my understanding is that there is a higher percentage of bad districts in Mombasa. Part of me is glad that this stop is only a virtual one.
