Kenyan customs agents aren’t as nice as Delta agents

Nairobi and 6 hours on the road

Eight hours to Amsterdam, and then eight hours to Nairobi. Very uneventful. Luckily, I had the foresight to get an exit row seat. Score!

At the airport in Kenya, the customs agents decided that we would not be able to enter into the country with the instruments. They said that there were problems with other people bringing in instruments to “donate,” and then they would sell them. So we had to pay $250 to get the instruments into the country, and it only took over an hour to get that sorted out. We got through the red tape, but it was a lot stickier than we had anticipated. It was a real drag after so much travelling, but it will all be worth it when we see those kids!

We stayed the night in Nairobi, and then the next day travelled for 6 hours or so to a great trout farm (fried fresh fish!) and to our destination in Meru. Pictures from these days are on my Picasa album above.
