All the Girls had too much wine last night so today started slowly but by 10:30 we were en-route to our 1st stop - it was to find a Geocache that Rob had found on his GPS - some sad people hide things and put the co-ordinates on a website that other sad people go and find (Rob). Then we headed off to Lake Naivasha via the Rift Valley. 

As we left the plateau and dropped down to the valley we stopped to take in the view at 2000m  across the valley. We were then swamped by locals selling souvenirs, 
Daniel took to haggling with great aplomb. It was then on to the lake, where the Girls and the drivers put the tents up while the boys had a well earnt beer (or two). During our beer we spotted a local football team training - all in jeans and T-shirts, they were very grateful for a gift of a new Mytchett Athletic football kit.

Two memories of the day - the beaming smiles of tiny children living in abjact poverty and the fact that children can't listen to a song for more than 30 seconds.
