Kenya and international dating
You may or may not require a visa for travelling to Kenya but please do check this in advance.
Compared to other African countries Kenya is one of the easiest to travel to and because of the election of Barack Obama as president of the United States Americans are currently very popular in Kenya.
Being a European colony for several hundred years and also being a largely Christian country means that they only cultural difference that should be noticeable are in the more rural areas, you can still see the British and foreign influences in all the big cities in Kenya.
There are small things you'll need to watch out for like only shaking hands or passing items to a person with your right hand - the left hand is considered unclean and you should also avoid pointing at somebody with your finger.
For those of you living under a rock for the last two years, Obama's father was born in Kenya.
Obama was of course born in Hawaii, but Obama does have family in Kenya.
You'll also find that flights to Kenya are exceptionally cheap during Western summer months for some odd reason.
Around 80% of the Kenyan population is Christian, most of them being Protestant, and another 11% of the population is of the Muslim faith.
The Muslim component of the Kenya population tends to live by the coast whereas the Christian population is spread pretty evenly throughout the country.
Many visitors spend time in Kenya's highlands where the weather tends to be pretty mild by African standards, but the Equator divides the country in two, running just a little north of the capital Nairobi, and most of the country has a classical tropical climate with high temperatures and heavy rainfall.
