Scary looking bugs, aren’t they?
Actually, they aren’t bugs. The bugs have left. These are vacant exoskeletons from some kind of insect that outgrew its encasement. The skeletons are so stiff and strong that they stay in place, inverted against gravity, without any power of any kind. This is a testament to mother nature and the surprising strength that sometimes comes in small packages.
Of course if the bugs aren’t your thing the rest of the Takwa Ruins just outside of Lamu are rather incredible as well. We enjoyed the grounds with virtually no one else around.
