What a fair view......

All,

Just a quick post to let you know that we made it safely to Nairobi. Apparently KLM is still using a 747-400 made in the 60s before anyone had carry-on luggage, so a not-so-nice customer service rep stripped Lisa and I of our carry-on suitcases. Fortunately they just contained....everything that we packed for the trip. It was a bit traumatic, but we made it through and so did our luggage.

The picture is from our ridiculously beautiful hotel room at the Fairview where we got a complimentary upgrade, made it in time for dinner, and had fantastic pasta (for Kenya). Click through for two more pics from the hotel.

Glad to hear you (and your luggage) made it there, thanks for posting...

Glad you made it safely. Gorgeous hotel room, and it looks like the bathroom has a special trashcan just for art. Incredible! I was so engrossed in photos that I almost let Bax finish off Moti's breakfast, but he is very polite these days, and always stares at me before he starts eating, so he didn't get any. Except the "complimentary" one I gave him for being so good!
SO glad luggage also made it. As well as 1960s vintage plane...
