The 1st of January is the day of the dhow race in Lamu, Kenya

Dhow race, Lamu.

Dhow race, Lamu.

The crowd at the race. Finding a place to sit/stand can be a mission, so roofs turn into hanging out zones.

The 1st of January is the day of the dhow race in Lamu, KenyaIt’s an Island, so of course boats are a big deal. Add the fact that there are no cars (okay, maybe two that belong to the local government), and you pretty much understand why Lamu is mad about dhows (as the wooden boats are known).

About leratomogoatlhe

I fell in love with traveling Africa on a four day trip to Accra in 2006. I started my journeys around the continent in 2008, when I went to Senegal, and around West Africa to launch my dream of knowing Africa through all my senses. I have been to 24 countries (and counting) over five years of stopping everything in my life to focus on one phenomenal continent. #AfricaRocks.
