My friend Until the End

Nakandi a friend I made during the pandemic through an Online site. Almost three years later I went to her home country of Kenya to meet her. From Mombasa to Tsavo, from Kilifi to Malindi, I witnessed beauty around me I never imagined existed. This is a snippet of her drinking a beer while being her most authentic self as the sun went down on the African sky.
