Youth Encounter 2013: East Africa

An unexpected bonus

Living it up in Nairobi

A few days before the end of the visit a huge fire forced the closure of Nairobi Airport and it was soon clear that the team's return home would be delayed. This might have earned them some sympathy had they not been forced - at the airline's expense - to spend the extra days staying in a five-star hotel.
