Ethiopian Food at Kakuma

Some of the best Ethiopian food I have ever had was in Kakuma Refugee Camp. This is one of the largest refugee camps in Kenya- second to Daadab I think (I stand corrected on this).

Portcaeli Retreat

When you land at the Lodwar Airport, you will see a huge hill with something that will remind you of the Christ the Redeemer Statue in Brazil. This is because there is a huge statue of Jesus at the top of the hill. Upon inquiry I was told that it was a religious retreat center…
