I was chatting with my cousin a couple of days ago when she asked me, “You are not tired of water yet? Don’t you like live by the ocean?”, after I had told her just how much I enjoy the view of Lake Victoria from this lovely B & B in Kampala.

Show & Tell: Food, Zanzibar, Family & Friends and, of Course, Me! 🙂

It’s that time again: time for a little show and tell. What should you expect to see this time? Lots and lots of pictures of food across the region, pictures of Zanzibar—it seems it’s Zanzibar season in my life because I’ve been to Zanzibar not once but twice since the pictures from my last Instagram recap post—and unexpectedly, quite a few pictures of me, some even with  friends and family. Without further ado, here goes…. No. 29: Kafunda, Nairobi You know there’s got to be something special about this hole-in-the-wall bar in Hurlingham, Nairobi for word of it to reach … Continue reading Show & Tell: Food, Zanzibar, Family & Friends and, of Course, Me! 🙂
