Just around 8 p.m. on this Furahiday evening the whole of Embu experienced a power failure – and I was blessed with a wonderful new experience: a silent town.

The music @ the Night Club next door stopped playing, everything dark and I just reached out for my candoooools which I had bought the other day for exactly such situations.

Unfortunately, the electricity came back before I could fall asleep…electricity = 24h of music music music…soukous, benga, hiphop…and some Michael Bolton, Dolly Parton & other tortures. Well…if you can’t beat them, join them.
