Just like America, Kenya has weather. But unlike Oregon, when its Cloudy it isn't about to pour. I still am getting used to this. And after living in Kenya for close to three months, I've had one real rain.
Our training took place in Loitoktok, a quickly developing town at the base of Mt Kilo near amboseli nation park. During our stay there, it was cold every other day. In the town, most mornings where chilling, but around 1 or 2 it would usually be sunny and 85 degrees. If you go 20 minutes north, away from the mountain, it was usually much warmer. Also Walking ten minutes south, toward the mountain, was yet colder.
Waking out to Mt Kilo was cool. It really disappears into the sky. Most mornings it was very clear and we had a great few of it; a sky without clouds. Everyday around noon, clouds would appear and the mountain would hide in the sky.
Now i am living near Tawa (the closest posta). It is semi-arid, drought prone, hilly area. The hills cover the land, and most of them are filled with gardens, naturally irrigated for when the rain comes, I am told November at the latest. There is a good amount of green here, but I was also told that the entire area will be covered once it rains. When its cold here, its probably just below 70 and I get asked if I'm cold in just a sleeved shirt. I tell them there is not cold in Kenya.
The stars are different here. You can see them. I also knew that there was a milky way in the sky, the portrait you see in pictures, but i never though you could see it without a telescope. In kenya, you can see the sky at night and it is something else.
