Lake Nakuru National Park is a main attraction in Nakuru town. Nakuru is the capital of Nakuru County. The town soon to be city sproal a lot the A104, which is part of the Northern Corridor.
When the Kenya-Uganda railway line was constructed, although heavily criticized as the Lunatic Express or a road to nowhere, it had a profound impact in the creation the nation today known as Kenya.
As the nation grew, Nakuru Town also developed out of the activities of the railroad as it was one of the major stopovers that encouraged growth of business centres along the railway from Mombasa en route for Kisumu.
This county still have a lot trace of the white rule, big part of it is still under the few white, but also to good part is that a lot is under conservation. Major attractions in Nakuru, is a place we choose to visit, the Lake Nakuru National Park.
I would advise you if you have never done a park drive, make sure you do early morning or late evening. The park can be very hot, and animals always want to hide from the hot sun.
The road within the parks is always not turmarked, but it is well maintained. It is advisable to use an SUV but if you are like me, not able to afford one, even a sedan can manage 95% of the roads within the park. The only part we would not manage was the Out Of Africa viewpoint.
The road runs along the lake surrounding and with different exits, connecting the main gate and Lanet Gate. It also connects to Soysambu Conservancy. The park has two top viewpoints and two bird watching spots. The points to note are Baboon cliff, Out of Africa and Lake show where you can watch the flamingos.
I will also advise you against leaving your car when you are not in designated areas, Lions can eat you in a minute, or the Buffalos or rhino can come charging at you, and just like in the movies, you will be running for your dear life.
Lake Nakuru of late has swollen to claim part of the park where trees and buildings sit, am afraid if this goes on we might not have the road. The views along the lake are breathtaking though and we made many stops to just look at animals and observe their body language.
The whole drive would be 45 KM around the park, with hills and valleys and a lot of lake shoe driving.
Ich war heute im Kriegsmuseum in Ho-Chi-Min-City und versuche meine Gedanken zu ordnen. Ich habe über den Vietnam Krieg gelesen, ich habe Filme wie Apocalypse Now, Good Morning Vietnam u.a. gesehen und gerade vor ein paar Wochen die Dokumentation von Oliver Stone auf Netflix. Ich weiß was Napalm und Agent Orange ist. Was ich noch […]
Meine erste Erinnerung an Mobilität stammt aus der Zeit als ich den Kindergarten besuchte. Ich glaube da war ich vier oder fünf Jahre alt. Der Kindergarten war etwa 700 Meter von unserem Haus entfernt. Es gab einen kurzen und einen lângeren Weg zum Kindergarten. Der kurze Weg war effektiv. Erst rechts aus dem Haus, 50 […]
Seit ich vor einem halben Jahr beschlossen hatte, die Geschichte unserer Familie aufzuschreiben, war mir nicht klar, wie aufwendig das sein würde. Ich habe mittlerweile so viele Geschichten und von Familienmitgliedern gehört, die ich vorher noch nicht kannte, aber auch viele meiner Erinnerungen sind wieder wach geworden. Da geistert eine Menge in meinem Kopf herum ...
NaNoWriMo is here again. Every year, writers (bestsellers and amateurs alike) participate in this writing marathon virtually, through out the month of November. The aim is to write 50,000 words before the end of the month.
In their words:
#NaNoWriMo is a month-long creative adventure that takes you deep into your imagination every November.
#NaNoWriMo is your chance to finally write the first draft of that novel you’ve always meant to write.
#NaNoWriMo is waiting for you.
Once again, as I have been doing for more than a decade, I am trying to keep up with the #NaNoWriMo activities. There is a lot of merch to buy and win, and lots of group activities, according to region and genre and more.
This year, I got an angel’s blessing on my Writing.com account, in the form of a paid subscription for three months. I call it an angel’s blessing because it was anonymous, and it came at just the right moment.
So I will be uploading my #NaNoWriMo story to my account, for everyone to read. I hope I meet my target this time!
Between all the house restoration work, I had time to do another painting. When doing a full house restoration we really start from the bottom, removing everything what was added to the original structure of house, leaving us with bare walls, without floors and ceilings, left with the rough, basic foundation. When we are done ...
Am 26.10. Ist das Zollkennzeichen abgelaufen (siehe Dacia Dokker). Am Montag, 29.10. waren wir beim Finanzamt in Narbonne, um die Mehrwertsteuer für das Auto zu bezahlen. Mit der Bestätigung der Zahlung können wir es zulassen und uns die in Deutschland bereits bezahlte Mehrwertsteuer wieder erstatten lassen. Die Zulassung erfolgt komplett online. Über die französische Steuernummer …
