Eleven years after her first, brief visit, Kay ... has settled into the rhythms of life on Lamu, yet she still expresses a sense of disbelief: “It is almost like a figment of my imagination. It is a surprise every time I walk up the steps. It is the place I go to for restoration, healing, reading, being close to nature. It is my piece of heaven."
