visual roundup

A collection of scenes I’ve caught during the week. Because life is about seeing and sharing. Here you go:


Some dude presenting puppet theatre aka The Muppet Show on Mama Ngina Street in Embu earlier this week. The puppets looked really really strange. Nice!


Isn’t this beautiful? That’s my way to work every morning.


Back in Nbo for an extended weekend, and a quick visit to Nakumatt Village once again shows the huge difference between all these small worlds embedded in this country. There were some news on the Garissa floods again, and they actually showed the very same places I’d been to before one week ago. Strange. You’re standing there in this oversized supermarket and see these places that are in Kenya, but still seem to be worlds away. And there’s a lot one could argue about in terms of deforastation + too much agriculture on the river beds which leads to soil erosion etc etc but then….compare Garissa to Mwingi and you’ll start wondering why money hasn’t solved any problems in one of these two places in the past. And “disaster management” isn’t something one can buy for money only.


“Horny Goat Weed”. Well, DON’T, just don’t even think about asking me how I came across this peculiar trouvaille. The name is quite catchy though. Hehehe…

What’s it with Goats (wabuzi) in this country anyways?? Oh my…


Looks like POLO, by Ralph Lauren. Smells like POLO, by Ralph Lauren.

I had to buy this one, sorry. A price of Ksh 129 /= (compared to ~ Ksh 4.000 /= for the original) is something where my metrosexuality comes out…
