I have just put away my farm tools so that I can tell you how my day has been. It has been a long tiring day, like many other days before, and many more to come.

Today, I didnt go to work, or rather, I didnt secure any job in town. So I went back home - to dig in the dusty piece of land (shamba) that my father left to me when he passed on in the year 2001. I hope to plant some vegetables in the next two weeks or so...

Perhaps Id better tell you a little bit about myself. I am Kachumbari, a 30-year-old kenyan. I live with my wife and two kids in a real Kenyan village called Tetu, in the slopes of the Aberdare Ranges in central Kenya. I have no formal job but Im able to make a decent living from a number of activities that will become apparent in future posts. I have some basic education (of course you wouldn't be reading this if I wasn't!) and hope to further my studies as time goes by.

I love the village and I have no intention of leaving.

This is my personal space to write about experiences inthe village, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Life here is great- full of adventure...... You are welcome to shere in the fun...

I second Irena in the belated karibu kwa makofi ya kilo. Looking forward to more interesting posts from you.

Take pride in that piece of land. Work on it with all you got & in time it will work for you, your lovely wife & two kids.
