Turkana District

My temporary car, the other Landrover broke down

Lodwar Hospital

This man is left alone, the room, bed all is dirty, this is a "Government Hospital", for us in Europe unbelievable. There they say he has at least a bed so he should not complain.
This is the last stage of AIDS, so we see many people suffering this way. This was during the visit of the Dutch Ambassador to Lodwar on August 7, 2003

Back out of Nairobi

Flying along the Elgeyo Escarpment you can find this high waterfall. The Escarpment is very spectacular, because it drops at some places 2000 feet.
