Drive to Lake Turkana

Today I along with Kura’s family, begin our journey to Lake Turkana.

The four hour drive from Korr takes us through Illaut, one of the oldest towns in northern Kenya. We stop here to check out the borehole where the people come take their water. It was disturbing to see this is the only option for water in this remote, arid village. People suffer many issues due to unclean water, the largest being abdominal discomfort. Typhoid, tiniea, amoba and during extreme seasons, cholera.
