On the coast, we stayed in beautiful Mombasa. One highlight was the visit to the over 300 year-old Fort Jesus - the site of numerous massacres, all in the name of slave trade.

Once back in Nairobi, we visited Karen Blixen's house (she wrote Out of Africa, which was turned into a movie with Robert Redford and Meryl Streep). We also got to haggle for souvenirs with some of the world's wittiest vendors, one of which joked his ware was "duty free."

On our way back home we had a long layover in Zurich - just enough time to enjoys some coffee and take a quick walk around. It was a gigantic culture shock to go from dusty Nairobi to spotless Zurich…yet not paramount to getting home. (Ahhh... familiarity).
