Sweet Sweet Lamu - Lamu Tamu (in Swahili). A place that has been special to us for a long time. Somewhere in the Indian Ocean, the island dwelling of Lamu in Kenya lives at a different pace. The oldest continuously lived-in Swahili town in the world, it now faces multiple threats of a new coal plant being built, Al Shabab attacks nearby and plans for the largest port in East Africa near its shores. But life goes on as it always did, celebrations for Eid after a month of Ramadan fasting, fishing off wooden dhows, preparing local vegetable favourite - sukuma wiki, riding camels, henna parties and baby turtles hatching on its protected beaches, Lamu stays strong against the odds. Despite fears and misunderstandings in the media from the outside world, it is as safe as it always has been and as welcoming as it always will be. Its people are even more beautiful than its stunning backdrop. Stay strong Lamu we love you.
