  • Chasing elephants, a guide.

    Chasing elephants, a guide.

    I spent the last evening of 2018 chasing elephants in Ol Pejeta Conservancy. At some point, I almost gave up.

    Taking Stock 2.25

    Hey you,I know it’s been a while since we talked.

    I’ve been gone for a while, I know. Not one month, not two but two and a couple of weeks. Truth is, I’d remain gone for a few more if it was really up to me- it isn’t. The guy that runs this space for me has taken it upon himself to text me, on […]

    A Rack of Ribs and Savanna – RocoMamas

    My friend Zein likes to joke that Nairobi girls operate on a template; we don’t particularly care for beer but drink Savanna almost by the bucketloads, if a chilly evening finds us at a coffee shop, we order a honey, ginger and lemon but believe almost religiously in the healing powers of Java’s Dawa whenever […]

    Taking Stock 2.23

    I’m not sure what inspired Nike’s slogan ‘Just do it!’ but I’ve found that taking it literally works. For instance, I’d convinced myself my to do list is too packed for me to blog and started adding this blog post on to that list over lunch but halfway through, my brain went ‘Or you could […]
