Lake Nakuru

Hello trashies. Excuse the sparse posting lately. I’ve been distracted by the ash cloud, which grounded me in Nairobi this past week (where I was passing though when the Icelandic volcano erupted). To change things up while waiting for my reservation out of town I took  a bus to Nakuru where I spent the night at the Wildlife Club of Kenya Guesthouse inside Lake Nakuru National Park. After a serene night’s sleep, I went for an early game drive where I saw loads of white rhinos, herds of buffalo, a huge and beautiful pink horizon of flamingos, storks, pelicans and this eagle. And sadly, inside what should be a pristine environment: trash. Such as the yellow plastic bottle disrupting this scene. Sigh.  On a positive note, my guide Bosco spends his off time in the low season volunteering for a local NGO that sorts local trash, picks up waste from the streets of Nakuru town and gives educational classes for neighbors on proper waste disposal and the importance of keeping our natural surroundings trash free. Go Bosco.
