Lovely Lamu

The second week of December I took an amazing little vacation to Kenya. The goal: Lamu, a beautiful Swahili island about 7 hours (by bus) North of Mombasa. Gorgeous and amazing.

Yes, the water actually is this color. And it's warm! And yes, it is December!

On Lamu donkeys are the main mode of transport and transporting goods around the island.

Old architecture, old man, pink flowers.

Lamu is known for its intricately carved door frames such as this one.
