Portrait Of A Cute Girl In Lamu, Kenya

 

Lamu is a small town on Lamu Island, in kenya, near the Somalia border.

Lamu town is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site as it was one of the original Swahili settlements along coastal East Africa.

The town's history is marked by a Portuguese invasion then the Omani domination, like in Zanzibar. The streets of Lamu are very narrow, so there are no cars, only donkeys to carry everything!
