So, I have settled all the affairs I can, posted out loads of reminder invoices and checked all my commitments for the next two months.
And I think I can finally get my butt out to Kenya. It has been over a year since I was last there, about 9 months too long a gap between visits.
I am planning to leave the UK on 7 May, flying overnight to JKIA, arriving early on the Friday morning, then a shuttle to Kisii, unless a miracle happens and I can hire/borrow/beg/steal a car - forget the steal bit, just hire/borrow/beg. I really do not like the trip from Nairobi to Kisii on shuttles. I feel that it is akin to suicide.
After an as yet undefined stay in Kisii, where I will be getting the shamba into some sort of order, and kick-starting an anti-malaria drive in the area, I will hop across the country to Malindi to see my girlfriend and the kids. I suspect that I will do very little as I find the coast just too hot.
Finally, I will probably have to stay a few days in Nairobi to catch up with contacts and see what the job prospects are. Then home to UK.
Shouldn't take more than a month to six weeks. It's a tough life but someone has to do it.
