Crocodile Tears

Crocodile Tears

The weather has never made me cancel a trip but the one in March this year has just been too nippy and raw for me. A month ago I prayed my novena to St. Jude for rains but not this kind. Bridges were swept off, people died and others slept in traffic for nights not to mention all the drugs I have had to kill the influenza viruses which took over my system severally in this month. See, I am not a procrastinator it’s just...

Africa’s Longest Snake

Remember when you couldn’t wait to get to form 2 or 3 to drop some of the subjects? That was Yvonne in 2010! History vs geography? I had no second thoughts when it came to this two.

Rusinga and Takawiri Homa Beach Day 3

All that has a beginning has an end but what a caterpillar calls the end a butterfly calls it the beginning. The last day means the end of the trip but on this particular trip, it meant the beginning of new memories and friendships for me. Breakfast, shower, unpitched tents and off we set for takawiri island on a water bus. Takawiri island is one of the 19 islands on Lake Victoria; the lake water here is fresh and clear;...

Elephant Hill Hike

Ever gone through your memories of when you were 5 to 10 years of age? (If not, just take 3 minutes off the blog post and try figure out what you were up to back then, then come back). What did you remember? (Comment about it after the post). Those in the city during the 80s were busy watching G-Force Guardians of space and the real Alvin and the chipmunks before Theodore became adorable, born 90s eyes were glued on the...
