The Record of Millville Military Air Field



Bev found its way to Nairobi to start a month-long journey through Kenya and Uganda. One of many significant reasons for her visit was to meet up Jared, a Ugandan university student who she had been sponsoring for the past 18 months.Bev’s timing was perfect: the Sea Turkana National Event was to take place a few days following her arrival in Kenya and therefore which was the first destination. Moses and Laura, friends of OTA and homeowners of Mara Explorers camp in Maasai Mara, were in Nairobi and were cajoled in to joining the trip north. Then they invited Scott and Helene, a British pair driving their Land Rover across the continent while they found out how to spend their retirement. And therefore our small band of intrepid travellers started the two-day journey to the far north-western place of Kenya.

We undergone a few sceptics who were dubious about the capability of the OTA vehicle to get to Loiyangalani and to cross the leave to Marsabit. But Francis treated that Toyota just like a correct professional inspite of the rain, dirt, high ascents and descents, free stones and every different obstacle imaginable. In Maralal we had to locate our authorities escorts to accompany people further north. There were only a couple of times when Bev discovered the necessity to carefully push the young soldier’s rifle away from pointing directly at her – he was very calm about holding such a system, but we possibly could have been much more comfortable had he been a tad bit more attentive.פורטל ליווי

The first morning of the Turkana Festival was fantastic. Fourteen ethnic groups from upper Kenya collected in Loiyangalani, each setting up a traditional home, wearing conventional costumes, dance traditional dances and singing conventional songs. The atmosphere was fun as each group tried to out-sing and out-dance each other. Unfortuitously, this was the very first year the Marsabit Region Council was working the festival and it appears that they didn’t take much guidance or assistance from the organisations who had been included previously. The program was dismissed and we discovered ourselves doing the planned 8am rise up a hill to see steel art in heat of the midday sun.

The 2nd day was actually less ordered as most of us waited for Deputy President Ruto to arrive before any activities can start. His planned birth at 11am didn’t happen till 3pm and the planned actions turned out to be always a political rally. This is great for the residents who do not often see their MPs, but also for foreign tourists it was not probably the most exciting « cultural function « .

From Pond Turkana, we headed east to Marsabit wherever we’d a small accommodation tragedy but a great food find. While Bev, Francis and Tracey went in to area for dinner, Scott prepared at camp for the rest of the group, including our authorities escorts. Pasta with vegetables – nearly what troops in upper Kenya are used to and they were only a little anxious about that mzungu food.
