Personal highlights

  1. Kakamega: nearly as big as my home town (Basel), but feels like a village!
  2. Siaya Guest House: all the maids want to take a picture with me and my friend
  3. Tuskys mall: pretty run down shopping mall with ugly office spaces above
  4. Signature bar: one of many nice places to have a Tusker beer (ask for cold!) 
  5. Rainforest: Kenya's only remaining tropical rainforest (missed)
