    Sono stata in questo luogo più volte e debbo dire che sono sempre stata bene . Un appunto devo farlo nel prezzo della ristorazione ..un po' eccessivo se consideriamo che il pesce viene pescato su posto....e siamo in Kenia dove lo stipendio medio va da 70 agli 80 euro ...pagare 25 euro per un pranzo mi sembra eccessivo quasi una rapina.
