The next morning we met Gitonga (Hillary), a local Kenyan who was visiting the hostel for breakfast. Within 1 hour, we jumped on the local bus and traveled 5 hours with him and Alessio (an Italian dude volunteering in Kenya) north to Meru.

The bus ride was long, bumpy, hot, but colorful. The seats were very small, but they still pack more people than seats. The mexicans got nothing on these Kenyans! Overall, the ride was great because we got to see how most people here get around...not to mention a 6 hour bus ride was only around 7 USD.
