As I watch the waves move in great force, my heart calls out “devour me”. Nature called out to me like never before. I will be honest here, I have seen Lake Turkana before. It does have a large mass of water but, It didn’t excite me at all. It was quite and calm. It was so inaudible, I couldn’t stand it. I am loud in nature. I like it when things get all strange, bubbly and fun. That’s how my life functions.
I remember getting all excited when I saw Lake Victoria. It was around 6.45 pm in the evening. I was in the land cruiser trying to pick a conversation with the guy sat next to me, when he told me “Hey, check out the lake”. I still regret my reaction when I saw the strong waves hitting the shores of the lake. I looked like a kid who had just been given a ticket to Disney World. Everyone in the cruiser gave me a side eye that insinuated “Kid better sit your a** down. Anyway, I don’t care what they thought about me (actually, deep down I do). Moving on. I have a lot to say about my trip to Rusinga Island…but I tell better stories through the lens, so I’ll let you “Kula na Macho” as some crook mafisi’s say.
