haha no problem with the off-topic talk, that'll just help the thread get more views
But yeah, we flew to Nairobi, spent a few days there checking out Rift Valley (the nearby Hell's gate national park is great btw, nice place for hiking) and some research organisations that we have some contacts with.
After that we drove to Taita hills (area in south-east Kenya) to a research station owned by the University of Helsinki. Spent about a week there, visiting some local schools, Tsavo -east and west national parks etc.
After that we returned to Nairobi, for about 2 days. Our schedule was kind of tight so we didn't really have the time to do everything we wanted but at least we got to make a visit to the biggest (I think) local slum-ish area, Kibera.
Aaaand after that it was back to Finland, 26 hours of airports and planes *shudder*
Could have been a longer trip but even if it was only just shy of 2 weeks the experience was great, would go again in a heartbeat.
