When my driver suggested a visit to the glass blowing, I thought I'd seen it all before, but OK. The long drive over the stony ground - I'd not call it a road, was dusty and interesting. Masai country, we saw nucleus of new settlements, mostly for well-to-do middle aged middle class Kenyans, traditional manyattas, a brand new mosque, rows of small country shops, and the wide open plains with herds of painfully thin cattle and goats. Not much grazing or water, but somehow they survive. Finally approaching the glassworks, the side of the road was dotted with artworks - reminded me of Lousiana in Denmark and later at the glasssworks of Parc Guell in Barcelona. Kitelenga Glass is really a place worth visiting, the products and the place itself. Me, I bought more than I should - had to be innovative as to packing.
