A very early rise to ensure bus seats. It was an easier "rush" this time as we set off by 5.30 am. It was a mix of scenery - starting off green and dense but soon arid and sparse. Lots of red clay soil plains and big termite mounds. Some primitive village dwellings and more tribal attire. They seemed less friendly except a couple of girls on the bus who showed real interest. Our hot and squashed journey ended by 2.00 pm. Our border crossing was simple. Moyale looked like a dive as we set to bargain for flights onto Nairobi. No luck, so we settled for a truck lift, while sick boys splashed out for comfort. Quick spaghetti feed, settled into a simple hotel.
