Kenya – 6 June 2010

Spectator at the rugbyA relatively painless overnight flight took us, along with Janine, to Nairobi, to stay with Murray and Miriam, and meet up with Bradley and Susan who had arrived the day before.

Murray met us at the airport, and suggested an afternoon at the Safaricom Sevens. It's many years since we've been to a rugby game, and for Susan, it was her first experience.
Entertainment between games
Crowds blowing their vuvuzelasTeams from all over Africa as well as Britain, France, Argentina and even NZ were playing and as today was the final, the more than capacity crowd were extremely enthusiastic, and when Kenya A beat Kenya B, the noise was overpowering!
