Welcome back! I echo everyone else; hope you have lots of pictures to share and we are looking forward to recipes!

My ex was offered a chance to move our family to Kenya many years ago - I often regret that he turned it down - I think it would have been great for the kids and I, but I was pregnant and he didn't want to drag me away from "home". One of the few regrets I have.

Thanks for sharing your photos Jikoni! Looked like a lot of fun! You have a great-looking family. First time I've seen polka-dotted crabs. Poor sharky, I'm glad you didn't buy it so hopefully the fishermen won't try to catch those next time. We have tuk-tuks here too and they look very similar!

Nice to have you "home", Jikoni. Thanks for sharing your vacation with us. My favorite photo is the one of all the little soccer stars.
