Pictures from Kenya

I'll have more as I go. Here are a few from yesterday. Today's missed opportunity was of a pair of vervet monkeys that came onto the grounds. By the time I fetched the camera, they had disappeared. Moral of the story - take the camera everywhere, including the patio during breakfast.

I went for a short run. It turns out that I'm not just slow at sea level - at altitude, I'm really slow. Also, the pain in my foot that I thought was healed, isn't. I'll try a different pair of shoes and see if that makes any difference. Still, I covered three miles. I did catch sight of a tall, lanky fellow headed the opposite way, laying down sub-six minute miles like it was nothing. Beautiful to watch. I waved, but he was already gone.

 The Hotel Troy-Nairobi. A bit spartan but the staff - Cecile, Chris, Joseph - are very pleasant and helpful.

 As I mentioned, I came across a troop of baboons on the way to lunch. When I'm out walking, I'm carrying my work camera. It's nearly indestructible and takes pretty competent pictures.

 I figured this male baboon did not want me intruding so I yielded right of way.

 I was right - he expected cars to give way, too. I didn't get a picture but a young female with a baby on her back just missed getting hit as she jaywalked at high speed across this highway.

 This sign cracked me up. Is the Ultimate Security limited? Not so ultimate, then. (I know, it's the corporate organization of the company - it just funny.)
