Once we passed the Frontier we hit the road to Kisii, it was plain sailing. Sailing in a Force 10 gale that is. For the first 90mins or so, the road was diabolical and we were tossed around in the truck. I’m getting used to this and enjoying it in a perverse way. For me this trip is all about experience, especially new and challenging ones that pitch me out of my comfort zone. Let’s hope the bumps don’t pitch me out of the open side of the truck.

We stopped for lunch and then visited soapstone factor, see following footprints.

Weather glorious the whole day with hot sun and pleasant wind.

Soapstone Factory ☀️ 23 °C

Visited soapstone carving factory outside Kisii to view the process of transforming raw quarried stone to finished items. Whole process was manual handicraft with no automation at all. I bought a few small oval bowls with images of Masai warriors on them.
