Mecca

I recently visited Karen Blixen’s farmhouse, at the foot of the Ngong Hills outside Nairobi.

Ngong is a Maasai word meaning “knuckles.” How descriptive of these hills. I am sure there is a story behind this; I would love to learn it firsthand on a visit to the Mara.

For those of us with a certain nose-to-the-grindstone, love-of-the-land, romantic-nostalgic kind of nature, Baroness Blixen is a top inspiration.
