A cool, even cold morning, and atmosphere reminding me of our ryukan in Kyoto.I got up at 09:00 only, shaved in the hallway and turned down the two shower options: cold or ice-cold.
I was annoyed again about the girls smoking cigarettes, so I went down alone, wrote my diary and had an egg for breakfast. When they came down and joined me I told them this would be our last day together and that I would drop them of in Naivasha.
We left at 09:00, and I first tanked up at 12,560 km for a total of ks 85.
I also bought some ks 100 souvenirs: a knockberry, a shield,a double ring hanger, a turtle basket and a neckchain.
I took care to avoid shoestores.
We were all three in a bad mood while we descended into the plain crossing the trail of three giraffes,
one of which decided to make a run for it, be it in slow motion. I took some photos and then we climbed up again
and drove in the direction of Nairobi. We now decided that they would go along to-day,
so that instead of delivering them home
I would give them ks 100 to take a bus or matata.
Once again we drove past the magnificent escarpment. We bought some pears before turning left towards Limuru which I drove through at full speed ignoring their hint that there was a bank here.
I was still mad about the fact that they had put cigarettes onto the hotel account without asking. We left Uplands lying at the right,and went through Hot Springs on the way to South Kinangop, where they wanted to be dropped off. The road got muddier and muddier, especially near an elementary school where dozens of schoolboys in khaki shorts and terra
sweaters stood laughing while they encouraged a truck driver to slide and slither forward slowly.
