Lamu- A magical place
Lamu is a historical town with many old buildings, narrow streets and a friendly Arab population. It has long been a trading center and as far back the 11th Century dhows sailed along the East African coast to Arabia, Persia and India. With the abolition of slavery in 1907 the economy of the island went into decline. In the early 1970s, Lamu was discovered by 'hippies,' who loved the easy going attitude of its people and the island's ambiance.
