I'm here with 7 other travel agents on a study tour. I'd love to share this beautiful place with clients, but I need to update my current knowledge. I shouldn't be sending people to the Thorn Tree bar at the New Stanley Hotel since I just learned that the thorn tree has been cut down. Unfortunately, we will have no time to explore Nairobi. After a long journey from Washington Dulles Airport, including a long layover in Amsterdam, we did not arrive at our destination until after 9 p.m. A long ride to Hemingways Hotel and we crashed, only to be up early the next morning to catch a flight to our first destination -- Lewa Safari Lodge in Lewa Conservancy.
