Default Nyali Mombasa

Hi Everyone

Im in Mombasa for work this week, and its hot as heck!! 36C during the day...I think I'll melt soon.

So, being the genius I am, I forgot to take my FZ38 and instead had to resort to my Iphone for shots...very challenging getting exposures/focus right.

Was free one evening, and managed the following from my room balcony.

Oh you silly sausage! Not a bad effort from a phone I must say. Did you have a swim?

If you have to work this looks like a nice place to do it.

Working at 36 C? I think this is not so great ;-) But Mombasa is an interesting place, I was there in 1995 (Oh my God, this is a long time ago ^ ^)

DML - too bad you didn't have your camera, the first shot would have been awesome with your Panny. Stay cool!!

Great view from your balcony!! Seems to be a good place to relax after work enjoing the heat and a cool beer

Even with an iPhone, nice panorama and sunset shots
