This is a blog that delves deep into issues such as the racism of pineapple and banana on pizza. Why we should elect a potato for president and how avocado cures cancer. Deep stuff. This is a safe space. Feel free to say anything here. Unless it's something I do not like.
I intend to visit every Kenyan County before I am 30. In my head this sounds like a joke because of my mild agoraphobia but since my career is in fieldwork, I think it might be possible. The latest county I visited was Baringo. That was last month. I had planned on posting stories from there but somehow I drifted from that idea. I feel like I need to write down everywhere I go lest I forget. Just the other day I found myself wondering why I have a picture of an Kenya Airways aeroplane wing in my phone when I suddenly remembered. I was in Tanzania in February. How the hell could I forget that. It was my first and only time on a plane. This scared me enough to heighten my constant fear that my poor memory is get worse and if I don’t do something about it, I will die. Well, blogging is the something and without further ado, here are the pictures gotten from that place. I spent my week at Soi Lodge. Fancy as fuck. To me at least, others found the place dingy but the fact that I could walk out on the balcony and gaze at Lake Baringo was too exhilarating.
I met the governor, Hon. Cheboi. Killed a snake. Got on the lake. Saw so many birds that I felt like I was in an episode of Nat. Geo. Learnt which folk is used for what. Who am I kidding. That I did not learn, I was using whichever was closest. The food was great by the way, and that is a great deal if you are aware of my eating disorder. So without further ado, I present to you. Baringo.
This poor bird landed awkwardly and got caught by the thorns wide open. It’s dead. The crocodiles are waiting below for it to rot enough to drop into the water.
