Monks and tea 隐修士与茶

On the way back to Nairobi from Masai Mara National Reserve, we put up a night at the St. Benedictine Monastery.

We reached the monastery at about 8 pm after a grilling 6 hours drive from Masai Mara.

The monastery situated at Limura, a tea growing region in Kenya, which is about 50 kms from Nairobi.

The monks of this monastery rely on agriculture and animals farming to support themselves, such as growing vegetables, tea, and animal farming.

After breakfast the next morning, Bro Sylvester led us in a tour of the monastery compound.

Later we went for a sightseeing of nearby big tea estates.

从马赛玛拉到修院,大约6个小时的车程,非常的疲劳,抵步时已经是晚上8点了。修院坐落在一个叫Limura 种茶的地区,离开首都奈罗比大约50公里。
