Subject: My parents’ beach house in Lamu, Kenya
Forgive the spam, but I wouldn’t be a dutiful son if I didn’t send this out.
As you may know, my parents met and married in the Peace Corps 50 years ago and have now retired in Kenya, where they’ve lived and worked for the past decade. A number of years ago they bought a beautiful beach home on the island paradise of Lamu (one of only two places in Kenya listed in the book 1,000 Places to See Before You Die). They only make it there maybe one weekend a month, meaning that 90% of the time it’s sitting empty, so they’re now renting it out. To that end, they’ve put together a new web site, www.lamubeachhome.com (I pasted the main page below).
If you or anyone you know is coming to Kenya, spending a few days in Lamu is a must-do, so please feel free to contact my parents (see info below) and/or forward this email around.
