Today we were up bright and early; ready for the airport. As usual it was a bit chaotic, but that’s to be expected with four girls; 8 suitcases and 3 hand luggage’s; we got to the airport and immediately the man at the counter started calling me his wife, lol everyone found it funny, and Aj kept saying Tajé is a hit back to back! This worked in our favor tho, as we were at the counter, check-in closed but he went to their office and opened it! YAAAY for Peter (that’s his name btw); landed in Kenya, and the cold welcomed us, clean air! LOVE IT; looking forward to Kenya’s shenanigans.
We set off to Kenya today. I ain’t even gonna lie, Cameroon was a good time. And if Cameroon was that way, I can only imagine what Kenya would be like. I mean, we’re going to Nairobi, Kenya. We had to say bye to Fointama, that was quite tough. He made our time so pleasant… Bless him. Fast forward 7 hours, we’re in Nairobi! The airport alone makes me sad about Nigeria. I started exploring their food already on this first night. I had ‘Bajiya’ (sp?), it’s irish potatoes with some extra funk. Lol. I’m itching to see what else is in store in this country. So, Kenya, be good to TASA. Bisuos Bisous.
We are off to Nairobi today, Finally! Not that Cameroon wasn’t fun but c,mon it’s Kenya. With little to no sleep we are up again trying to leave the hotel in time for our morning flight out. Fointama gets here bright and early to make sure we get to the airport on time. I spend most of the time following Foin around the airport as I’m connected to his hotspot. (Don’t judge me please, a girl needs her internet connect). We had a very emotional goodbye to Foin and as we walked past customs all I could think of was how much sleep I was going to get on that plane. We take off soon enough and trust that I slept like a baby…Touchdown Kenya! It’s such a picturesque country and I can’t wait to explore it.
This has to be one of our most uneventful days this whole trip…after minimal to no sleep last night (as usual) here we are again with another early morning. We made it up and out of bed and of course as I got out of the elevator downstairs our Cameroonian super hero/tour guide Fointama was right there with 8 bottles of pamplemousse…now at this point I feel the need to give a quick definition of terms. Pamplemousse: Grape fruit or super awesome soda made with said fruit found in Cameroon ONLY. Now that you are all caught up, As I was saying…super excited about that…definitely “smuggling” it to Kenya. We made it to the airport just in time and thanks to Taje and her special “jazz” for the Cameroonian male folk, we got to check in real quick as she apparently got married to the guy at the counter this morning and of course it comes with perks. Our plane takes off and the trip isn’t so bad; this from someone who absolutely HATES flying. Almost 700 hours later we land in Nairobi, Kenya and from the looks of this airport alone, I can tell I’m gonna LOVE this country. EVERYTHING here is beautiful beht I hope this cold is not gonna be the death of me tonight. Its 4am here and I’m just getting into bed…sheesh! big day tomorrow…lets see if I can get in a few hours of sleep…Kisses
