Mombasa, Kenya – My Camera Went on Vacation Without Me

Hi folks, I’m back after a month’s hiatus! I was stranded without my camera for a while. It hopped on plane to sunny Mombasa and left me in the lurch covered in snow. Now that the camera’s back (thank you little sister), I can get back to regular posting!

Mombasa Island

The camera came back with souvenirs – from looks of these photos, it had a great time. I’m quite jealous, I miss all the great food in Mombasa, and I can practically taste it…

Street Food

Mombasa street food is amaaazing.

Quintessential island snacks – from the top of the photo: east african style sambusas made with crisp phyllo pastry; battered and fried potato dumplings stuffed with a cayenne/lemon paste; more sambusas; and my favorites are the bajias –  deep fried chickpea/coriander fritters.

The Oscar Goes to the Cassava Chips

And drum roll for my absolute favorite street food in the world:  fried cassava chips sold on the shores of the island…thinly sliced fresh cassava dusted with cayenne, salt, and a squeeze of lemon.
