They were somewhat made famous in the opening line of "Out of Africa" by Isak Dinesen (pen name for Karen Blixen):
"I had a farm in Africa at the foot of the Ngong Hills..."
You may recall that Jim and I cycled up towards the four peaks in August. This time, we decided to cycle along a back road that meanders on the east side of them. We didn't really have a destination - other than fun and adventure!
We ended up doing an exhausting 22 miles. In spite of my three punctures and our tiredness... we had an absolutely splendid day!
|One of many views of the hills throughout our ride|
|two more photos (of several that I took throughout our day)|
|We ate lunch under an acacia tree; I got a flat from the thorns!|
|My rubber cement was dry, so we got a ride on this matatu.|
|A bike fundi in Kiserian found three punctures!|
|After that we had a cold soda at this café|
