Lamb choma at resto in Entebbe – it seems everytime I have nyama choma it is served up a bit differently – on this occasion it took only 20 mins to prepare and was served without kachumbari (see my post on June 1 2011 for more info)
Success is great but the learning experience of failure can be even better. Embrace your vulnerabilities and don’t be afraid to stick your neck out. Seize the day and live life to the fullest! :)
At the East Africa Household Water Treatment workshop in Entebbe, Uganda. Just had my photo taken with the Minister of Health for Uganda
In Nairobi, all traffic stopped for President Mwai Kibaki’s motorcade: 8 motorcycles and 13 cars – mostly Mercs with tinted windows. No pics allowed :) pretty cool!
Poverty seems to mean different things to different people. If you were to define poverty and say someone is poor, how would you do it? What does poverty mean to you? Please share your thoughts (simple or complicated) with me here or in private. I’ll collect the responses and post them for all to read, without mentioning your name. I’d love to hear from you!
Heading to Alliance Francaise in downtown Nairobi for film screening and panel discussion of the documentary “Blue Gold: World Water Wars”. Seen it? Thoughts?
“Keep Peace Fellow Kenyan”
A couple of days ago, I snapped this shot along Kibera Drive, on the limits of the Kibera community in Nairobi. It serves as a poignant reminder of the post-election violence which shattered Kenyan society in early 2008. Before a power-sharing agreement was established, over 1000 people had been killed nationwide; Kibera was particularly affected. Depending on who you ask, you’ll get different perspectives on the root causes of the conflict: some say ethnic tensions, and others point to socio-economic issues. It’s probably both. With elections approaching again in 2012 and no firm resolution to the issues, people are worried that violence will rear its head again.
