stories from the village

So I think my village physiotherapist did a better job on my many injuries following the accident than the physiotherapist who I paid loads in Nairobi did. In case you know anyone needing help with their joints following a fracture or a sprain, ask them to call me. I will get them help at less than 1/4 of the price they will pay anywhere.


My father thinks that my pace of 6.07min/km is slow and that he can run faster at his age. Consider me not amused ๐Ÿ™‚



If you thought 2020 was the worst year, then you have not heard of 536CE.

Have a great week, will ya.

for Tish and all tea lovers

While many of my rides are through very beautiful scenery, I hardly stop to take shots because I see them regularly, I ride by fast or most likely I concentrate on the road more than anything else. Following encouragement by Tish, I took a few pics today during a grueling ride through tea farms. I hope you like them.

Note: They are likely out of focus because i didn’t get off the bike to take them.

Rusinga Island tour

To get to Rusinga, Tom Mboya’s birthplace, from Nairobi, one could take da bus to Mbita or fly to Homa Bay then take a van or for the very adventurous a flight to Kisumu then a van to Lwanda Kotieno then the ferry to Mbita from where you cross to the Island. It’s a small Island with very scenic landscape, Eco-lodges and nice beaches.

if you can’t go to the beach, we can bring the beach to you

I have no name for this one

who said coastal environment cannot be created by the lakeside?

Tish would call this window, maybe?

there is a ‘ghost’ city that appears at night and disappears in the morn’
