Subject: RE: Is it safe for me to travel to Kenya for Worlds? Where Should I go?
Weldon, there is violence in every country, every single day.
I think you should not miss this event. I am thinking about going myself since there is now a nonstop from Bangkok to Nairobi.
This is a historic occasion, the first ever major international championship of running in the one country that is arguably the "Capitol of Running."
Yes, you should go to Iten and Eldoret too. I'd love to do that but I just had an achilles surgery last week, so I'll be out of commission until at least mid-April.
Some of my most memorable experiences in my life have been from travelling to countries that are truly "3rd World." You'll find warmth, humanity, humility, and a who different mentality about life and the world. It is truly an educational and enriching experience to travel to 3rd World countries.
So go to the public health dept., get your shots and enjoy. From what I've read, it's best to just use Nairobi as a transit point, and get out into the rural areas, which will probably be safer anyway.
