“Perhaps he knew, as I did not, that the Earth was made round so that we would not see too far down the road.”
Karen Blixen, Out of Africa   

My first stop is Nairobi, Kenya. I will arrive a few days before the overland trip begins, and I will have time to explore this fascinating city. There is actually a wild game preserve in the city. I expect to take a trip through the preserve.

I will also visit the Karen Blixon Museum. This is the former home of the author Karen Blixon, known best for her book  Out of Africa. The book and movie are one of the inspirations for this trip.
