On my way home.

Gradually watching my surroundings change. Despite being a high exporter of coffee to the rest of the world,Kenya tends to be a tea society. Probably has to do with lack of easy preparation of brewed coffee.

More commonly if you are served coffee it is instant Nescafé. Their local instant coffee is very good, however, when you can find it. I have a little tin to bring home with me. Finely ground and good coffee taste.

There are parts of Kenya that are particularly good for growing tea. The fields are an endless green table of waist-high bushes that are speckled with workers hand picking the young tea leaves for drying and processing and shipping around the world.
