YMCA Nairobi - and imagine, even though there is a pool both here and in my hotel in Egerton I have still not been swimming!

YMCA pool
The pool has changed a bit. When I was small, there was just the big pool and diving boards. Seems to have been updated, since we were there in the seventies.

YMCA Nairobi

happy memories
I used to live in Nairobi. My brother and I would go swimming at the YMCA pool. It looks just about the same as it did away back in the 70's.

the guesthouse in Muyenga
I also loved the place, especially the rooms upstairs and the verandah by the entrance. And Maimuna and mzee the housekeepers. And the helpful people in the office.

Giraff i solnedgang!
Hehe, måtte le!! Men det er fryktelig godt å vite at du er på utkikk etter en giraff i solnedgang. Tror det hadde passet så godt i glass og ramme! ;-) Godt nytt år, Elin!! Klem fra Janne
