Ni Kuhama, Baby!

I've been so lost! Life took over. Life is good, thank Ngai.

Bado niko na Safaricom, thanks to M-Pesa. Safaricom-Airtel is not the kuhama I'm talking about.

Just a quick note to let you all know that I'm now living in Nairobi. Sort of. I actually live in a county in Central Province, but if I can take a matatu to the city centre for between Ksh 40-60, I can call myself a Nairobian, right? Some people actually live in the Rift Valley Province (Kitengela et al) and call themselves Nairobians, too, so I can get away with my living-in-Nairobi claim.

Anyway, I will be back with details baadaye, in the coming month(s). Hopefully with more great news on top of what I already plan to share. In the meantime, I will keep you up with some storos from .KE and/or .UG. If I get the time :-)

Cheers,

Masa wa Nairobi.

Looking forward to your posts!

Don't be lost. You are a great person and can overcome anything.

Asante KR. That was the strategy, to avoid 'Nairobi' so I can get to work in like 20 minutes.

TASWOSW: Thank you! I however think the use of 'lost' in this context was lost on you. It is direct translation from Kiswahili and Kikuyu for 'I have not posted for a long time'. In the real world, if you haven't seen your friend for a while, when you finally do, you don't ask them what they've been up to. Simply say, "you've been so lost!" and they'll explain.

Haiya Kitengela is in Rift Valley?

Karibu home. I think I can guess your county rather accurately.
