Look at the View

“Beauty awakens the soul to act.” Dante
As I sat down to write this week’s blog, I didn’t really have much to say. Of course, there are plenty of things going on in my life and limitless stories to tell about the work I do. But, nothing too exciting happened this week, and I was not feeling so creative. I decided to share some of the beauty of Africa that I have experienced.
This past Saturday, I went to one of my favorite places in Nairobi to call one of my best friends – there is good wi-fi there and the view is unbelievable. I found this spot when my parents visited last summer. Hemingways overlooks the Ngong Hills. It is beautiful, and one of the best places to watch the sun set in Nairobi. After the life-giving conversation with my dear friend and a sunset that did not disappoint, I felt my soul was renewed and ready for the week ahead.
Here are some of the views I’ve enjoyed since living and traveling in Africa. I hope the beauty inspires your soul as much as it does mine.
