The other week I was at the Kenyan coast. I was looking for every reason to hibernate. Animals hibernate, yes? See, the weather in Nairobi hadn’t been so welcoming especially with the heavy down pour followed by a stubborn cold bug that had been doing rounds,traffic madness and a general grey and gloom. I needed a break. However, I was not willing to break a bank to make my short holiday happen. I wanted something different. I was not keen on staying at a hotel, I wanted to feel at home but away home. So that meant booking myself...Read More
