Enjoying East African Waters & Food from the Sea

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. I understood where she was coming from—she’s not the first person to ask me this—but the truth is: no, I don’t tire of water. As I responded to her then, “Lakes are so different from the ocean. Oceans differ from each other”. What is constant about most bodies … Continue reading Enjoying East African Waters & Food from the Sea

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….

7 Sunset Dar es Salaam Pictures & Lots More

For whatever reason, I seem to be looking upwards a lot lately. Every picture I post on Instagram nowadays seems to be of the sky or at the very least is sky-heavy. Sometimes it’s a very blue sky. Other times it’s a beautiful sunset. I don’t know what this says about me or the headspace I’m in right now, but what I do know is that, judging from the reaction I get, many of my Instagram followers, and hopefully you my readers, can relate. Whatever the case, today, I’d like to share the best of these photos and videos with you. Because … Continue reading 7 Sunset Dar es Salaam Pictures & Lots More

Uganda: 8 Photos with the Most Likes on Instagram

I’ve mentioned on this blog before that I am part-Ugandan. I am sure, therefore, that it won’t come as much of a surprise to you then to learn that I spend a lot of time there, though I don’t write about it that often. My Instagram photos, on the other hand, are a whole different story.

Today, I’d like to share some photos, posted since my last Instagram roundup post, that received the most likes on Instagram.
