When it comes to art and culture, we go local and find things close to us, right on the island.
Striking small sticks and keeping rhythm, the village boys do a cool dance called the Kolkali.
Come get some of our culture on the island.
Pendant la fête du piment d'Espelette le week-end prochain, vous pourrez voir des démonstrations de danse basque.

While there are many ways to brighten up a room, nothing beats the touch of a beautiful plant.
Indoor plants offer delight for the eyes and make the design of a space more comfortable, breathable and luxurious.💚🌿
Soooo yesterday I went snorkeling with the birds of the ocean - Manta Rays. It was one of the most incredible experiences of my life.
They swam around us almost as if they were showing off, so gracious and majestic. One swam within meters of me, dancing around the ocean, mouth wide open feeding on some plankton and fish.
I'm not going to lie I shed a slight tear in my goggles because I was so moved by their beauty. When you get up close to these creatures and spend some time in their world, all you want to do is protect them. But to protect them we need to protect their homes and we aren't doing that. With her beautiful mouth wide open I had a thought about how she could so easily ingest some foreign object, most likely plastic. I then thought of all the other creatures that ingest our waste, human waste, that ends up in the oceans.
We HAVE to protect these creatures. We HAVE to stop using plastic. We HAVE to speak up about plastic use.
Be the person that refuses a straw, tell the restaurant or hotel to refuse straws and plastic bottles. We can reverse this damage before it gets worse. Be the change. 🌏
We would like to offer the best of luck to all the students starting their KCSE exams this week. This is an opportunity for them to demonstrate their diligence, academic ability and determination, and we are confident that all their hard work will pay off.
Ol Pejeta supports over 120 children on full and part scholarships, and hundreds more who attend the 36 schools we assist in our communities. Thanks to our revenue generating tourism, livestock and enterprise departments, we can ensure that the people who live alongside our boundaries can truly benefit from our conservation efforts. We are grateful to work with partners PA-MOJA who allow us to extend our reach even further.
Here we are again, Monday morning, which in Leeds may as well be Scotland because it’s bloody chilly waiting for my delayed train (standard transpennine). I’m definitely not at one of the oldest and most northernly distilleries getting to try whisky and being reminded that I used to drink it at parties when I was 14. We can’t have everything though can we, so here’s to just getting through Monday!
