A while back, I woke up to find a piece of paper under my front door. At first, I thought it was my electricity bill, but then quickly realized that it was a flyer from a snack bar called The Outback. On first impression (understand: from reading its name), I thought The Outback was some sort of American-style steakhouse. As far as first impressions go, that’s not a good one for me. I dislike imported, unadapted, copied concepts (can you tell that I fell strongly about this?:-)). On the front of the flier was a picture of a kangaroo, fork … Continue reading The Outback

Let me try to describe it by telling you what the Cellar … Continue reading Cellar Restaurant (Things to Do in Nairobi)
Today, I would like to tell you about a product that I truly enjoy. It’s something that we all use, but rarely think about—a toothbrush. I am in love with a particular Oral-B toothbrush known as the Oral-B Advantage Artica (see it here on Amazon)!
A few months ago, I was having dinner and drinks with a friend at Red Sea, an Ethiopian/Eritrean (I think more the latter) bar/restaurant, on Lenana Road, where I often go when I want good Ethiopian food in a good social ambiance. The Red Sea, for all its good points, is generally not the kind of place where I would ask for a glass of wine. In a place that I feel would not invest in their wine, I know that wine can taste more like vinegar than anything else. At the end of my meal though, I felt like … Continue reading Saint Jaume Valley, White Wine
