I think this Kenya picture gallery makes clear why I’ve really fallen in love with the country...

Kenya is diverse, even confusing. Next to poverty and the bad health situation you see a basically happy and relaxed people who enjoy the simple pleasures of life and always make time for you. There are tribal conflicts, but also a basic hospitality and friendliness towards strangers.

As Danish author Karen Blixen, who wrote the novel ‘Out of Africa’ on which the famous movie was based, hinted at this double nature once: "Africa, amongst the continents, will teach it to you: that God and the Devil are one, the majesty coeternal, not two uncreated but one uncreated, and the natives neither confounded the persons nor divided the substance."
