We went to Lamu on a weekend getaway from Nairobi. We felt like we deserved a treat after weeks of running from one production to the next trying to figure everything out the Kenyan way. Rosalie put together this little video here and it pretty much sums up our whole magical experience. Its a dreamy little island, with its very own rhythm and way of being. A little rough on the edges but has kind people and beautiful nature. There is not so much to other than relax and let the time pass by. You can get lost in the little alleyways, eat some delicious food at one of the beach places and do a sunset cruise one day (highly recommend!!). We stayed at Banana House which is super nice. The owner does yoga everyday which is really good and the house and garden are wonderful and the food delicious! We cannot wait to go back one day.
