Hi guys I am 45km past the Equator tonight going toward the Ethopia border where they throw you with stones and chew that stuff that makes them high. I think I am going to get a ketty and shoot them back. Ons boere vat mos nie nonsens nie. Till next time cheers.

Schalk this is an amazing journey. I'm following you right up through the continent. I know what you mean about Nairobi and the traffic. It can be crazy, and yes, some Kenyans can be a little bit hostile to foreigners. However, they are the minority, as you say.
If you are still there, go to Wilson Airfield. Lots of SA pilots there. Good to make contact with one or two in case you need a friendly face who knows stuff..
Go safe and Godspeeed the journey!
No Airguitar i am just past the Equator tonight. I found the Kenians very nice as all the other people I have met. Are you a pilot? I fly microlites as well but don't have money for the serious stuff.
