That was one great vacation! A large part of why for me was because our kids are now at an age where they think independently enough that experiencing new things with them is a treat; through their eyes, we see the world in ways we never would by ourselves.
The only downside for me this last week is that you can’t be around our lakes and not get a feeling of looming environmental disaster. The beautiful mini-lake we’ve visited regularly for the last 9 years has receded greatly, by distances of over 200m in some places. The main lake is even worse; we heard of areas where the water has receded by 3 km! We might as well start building roads across and allocating plots; at this rate, Lake Naivasha may exist for future generations like Nairobi Dam exists for today’s. I suspect the same is true for many of our great R.Valley water bodies.
This needs to escalate to a number one national priority. New constitutions pale in comparison. Too much is at stake for us as a nation to play politics with the environment. A pox on all our individualistic MPs and all who support their shenanigans! I fear even what’s going on at the Mau is too little too late. If we don’t work together, each doing our part, we may soon be saying the final rites for the late great planet Earth. If we’re still there to see it, that is.
Or maybe it’s just me. Anybody out there have any good news on this issue?
