The Indian Ocean monsoon winds are as influential today as they were hundreds of years ago when the sailors from as far away as China began reaching these shores. With the arrival of foreign influence came promise of prosperity, goods and charms as well as hardships and war. Kenya's coast has an immensely interesting and rich history - with many a reminder of bygone civilisations, cultures, and historical events to be seen scattered along her shores.
