Kilimanjaro!

My amazing friend Gaure Mdee trained and climbed Mt Kilimanjaro- mad respect for that, it is no small feat (to me he is now a badass of sorts)! He was also awesome enough to send me loads of pictures on the climb, I hope they inspire me to do the climb one day!

Nice place to see elephants

Voi Wildlife Lodge which is a few kilometers from Voi town is one of the best places to spot elephants- from sunset (these two words were the crucial ones that everyone in Voi forgot to add). And so you can imagine how excited I was heading there thinking I would see a whole heard as…

Enough with this isht!

As a Nairobian, I am increasingly getting annoyed, irritated and pissed off by the insane and unnecessary high cost of living in this god forsaken city!

Namanga woes

I worked in Namanga for a couple of weeks and the place is a bit depressing. For those wondering where it is, Namanga is a boarder town on the Kenya Tanzania Boarder. It is a big town where everything shuts down at 10 p.m. except for a couple of 24 hr shops for the late…

Best Red Velvet cake in Nairobi!

It is official, I found the place with the most tasty black forest, blue berry and white forest cake, but I could really care less- thats not my type of cake. But here is the breaking news. For the few who know my epicurious side and understand the sweet-tooth side of it, they know that…
