Reached Malindi from Lamu absolutely exhausted after a rather interesting bus ride in which we busted a tire. The bus was absolutely PACKED too. Unfortunately, I was not able to visit Gedi ruins before my bus to Nairobi the next day. Instead, I laid on my razor thin mattress and read Paul Theroux's Dark Star Safari: Overland from Cairo to Cape Town until the power went out and I decided it was a sign to go to bed. WRONG. An hour later it came back on and woke me up out of my stupor. I couldn't go back to sleep. Downstairs from dirt-cheap room (about USD $2/night) the disco blazed nonstop until 5am. I should have taken the cue and just gone downstairs and danced.
