The first part of our ride was on paved roads. But a ways after "Kona Baridi", after a steep descent down into the Great Rift Valley, we turned onto a dirt road. Soon, we were seemingly in the middle of nowhere. There were no cars, very few people, very few houses, and little cell phone network.
We were thrilled to see a couple of giraffes!
We started to worry that we would get soaked. Fortunately it didn't come our way!
Our ride even included a bit of Kenyan history. This is a memorial marker for JM Kariuki, a former Member of Parliament in Kenya. This marks the site where his murdered body was found.
