Step by step...

Despite everything you read here, Nyahururu is a nice place -very cool and relaxing. Life is very easy and if you have enough cash, very comfy. Problem comes when the cash is scarce, like in my case. However, the gods have been smiling at me because things are looking up lately -business is picking up well. After the prolonged draught, the rains are finally here and money is also flowing around. I've made good profits in the last several weeks and very greatfull to God for that. I even managed to buy a small colour TV in time for the world cup! If that is not "maendeleo"(development), tell me what is. I even transfered my kids from a public school to a private one, being very optimistic that I wont be going back to the bad times gone by... However, nobody should think that it was easy. I made it through sheer back breaking hard work and Im proud of it. I have many great ideas that I hope to implement. However, for now, its one step at a time.

And by the way how is this resolution going?
3. To be faithful: I have not broken this resolution and have no intention of doing so. It has not been easy, I can tell you (they say I look good, but do I say!). Dear God, help me to keep this resolution- and to you ladies out there, help me too by keeping off!

Poa sana mzee, u r beta off. this is my first time to do this blogging thing inspite of the fact that i had my yahoo mail account by 1998. Nimesoma nyingi kutoka kwako leo. I was attracted by Nyahururu element cos i think its a fantastic place. Hakuna njaa, and fud is always fresh, hata hewa pia. only problem is the guys in oljoro drink too much kumikumi, tena ni vijana wadogo. lakini plce is beautiful. sometimes i compare it with Mandera, where i currently are, two diffrent worlds. Keep up nitakuvisit tena. Uradhimwo.

You trying to call Nyahururu a village?
Grew up there and have best of memories.
Still waiting for them to revert the name of the falls to the original Maa or Ogiek name :)
Busara bado iko?

Good blog. Found it on a hazy Saturday morning via the BBC website. Took me back 20 years to my first and only visit to Kenya. We stayed in a village called Bungoma - the beer was cold and times were innocent and good.

Anyway, you're book-marked now....keep up the fine work!

It seems very different to the way you describe the internet from an African/kenyan village perspective than it is from an urban western European viewpoint.

This tool has got to be a powerful one to reach the world for trade and for expressing a cultural voice. Your blog is part of that good luck and I will pop in again.

Yea, I found your blog all the way from Minnesota in the United States through the BBC. You sound like a hard working man. Enjoy the world cup from the village.

Ooops, I just emailed you about the BBC link without reading the comments, sorry. Enjoyed the Blog a lot, but wondered if you had ever thought of using a spell check on your pages e.g. Via MS Word or using a webpage spell checker such as the free version of Wordweb from ( you might find it useful.

Greetings from North Carolina, United States! I found your blog via BBC. Great stuff! Maybe you can humor us with the 50 year old "sex bomb" story soon?
