Default Malindi New Year's Eve

So spend New Year's eve week in Mambrui, an ancient arab village.

It was very difficult to get any decent shots in that bright sunlight, and the beach frankly looks quite boring on its own.

We visited the ruins of Gedi, an ancient city suddenly abandoned in the 16th century.

Tough getting shots, but I tried.

dropmyload-

With the exception of #1 photo which is a bit overexposed, that is a very nice series. Good job!
