…and some things only cost 5 bob…


…like the Ada­zi (Man­da­zi) or that cup of chai.
Plea­se note the nice arran­ge­ment of menu cards, calen­dar & kitsch wisdom.

And what about the most ugliest pair of shoes I’ve ever bought in my life?



  • were rela­tively cheap (199/= Ksh)
  • are Made in Kenya (sup­por­ting the local eco­no­my, etc.)
  • are comfy “mens hi-qua­li­ty sand­les” which can be worn with socks (now try that with the nor­mal sandals)
  • were avail­ab­le in my size (same as Mental’s)
  • che­a­per than the fake Adi­let­ten san­dals which also weren’t avail­ab­le in my size
  • match my clothes when it’s dark outside
  • hey, this is Embu! who cares? :-)
