Water gives Kenya the opportunity to offer some of the most beautiful flowers in the world. It is also the most exported product from the Lake Navaisha region. The Kenyan pavilion emphasises the importance of water as the driving force behind the country's development. The country is also the main exporter of flowers to the European Union. Inside the exhibition area, you can see a rose processing factory. The shape of the lake can also be discovered on this stand, where the great change of colours reflects the diversity of a lake where some of the world's most spectacular animal species, such as crocodiles and hippos, also live. Along the way, the visitor will learn about the entire process of processing and manufacturing the flowers. This is not the only highlight that Kenya has brought to the Zaragoza exhibition, as visitors will also be able to learn about and obtain information on the Turkana child, an almost complete skeleton missing only the hands and feet of a young hominid boy who died between the ages of 11 and 12, 1.6 million years ago. Discovered in 1984, it is an indicator of the importance of this lake for life.
