5 Days of Summer: Mombasa Part 2

Day 2 was a more traditional tourist day and we checked out Fort Jesus, walked through Old Town and saw the Mombasa Tusks.

Fort Jesus is one of Mombasa’s tourist attractions. It was built by the Portuguese in 1593 to protect their sailing route back to Portugal. The Portuguese regarded themselves as representatives of christianity hence the name Fort Jesus. There is a constant stream of people coming in to see Fort Jesus both international tourists and locals (the cover charge is cheaper for Kenyans).

Walking through Old Town the buildings are beautiful but hella neglected, the different textures make for great backdrops though for our selfies and cheesy tourist shots, so we obliged.

Because it was a Sunday the street was not busy I managed to get the shot of the Mombasa Tusks uninterrupted.

SUNNY DAYS

Sunny days everybody loves them and yesterday was exactly that. So some of my girls and I went to French Toast in Hartebeesport dam for a post birthday lunch.  A little fun in the sun was had.

 

 

 

Then it was off to the dam to catch the sunset.

Yeah we don’t know how to pose (but check out my halo)

Thanks again girls for the fun and thank you universe for the sun.
