I took this photograph while walking across the alleys of Lamu. Lamu is an ancient, historical and amazing place of Kenya, which will give you the taste of cultural harmony. This is a place of absolute peace with 20000 people, 6000 donkeys, and without any mechanical vehicle. If you visit this place for once, you will feel like to come back every now and then.
