EXPERIENCES OF A VOLUNTEER IN LAMU

May 17, 2012

It was a balmy 90 degrees when my flight touched down at Lamu airport off the northern coast of Kenya, just sixty miles south of the Somali border on Valentines Day just after midday. This was to be my home for the next two and a half months. I wasn’t sure exactly what I was going to do down here and if indeed there was going to be enough to keep me occupied; little did I know.
