Returning to Lamu 1990 with our children for a holiday.
We found our Subira House, Former Liwali's House.
It was built by the famous governor of the Busaidi family
whose status in Lamu was that of a king under the Sultan of Zanzibar.

Every year we came for some months to relax
and work to set the house back to its original beauty.
