The Odyssey

Chasing life with the bus

Smooth odyssey via a bus coach is what I wanna see,

Myriads of ethnic groups in here is the vibe I wanna feel.

The wind streaming past the tiny space left by the panes,

The soulful and soft symphonies from the stereo plays.

Fauna and flora greets my new eyes as wildlife saunters,

Camera takes the moment which turns to a blur.

Rolling hills chase the magnificence of the lands ahead,

Dust paves way for the onrushing luxury bus.

Serenity grazes the full mind, clearing the anxiety,

Then musings lulls the on board into utopia.

Poem, Travels

Welcome to My City My Town

In my city:

The waters cover the open fields.

The open fields often go untended.

Untended work goes unpunished.

Unpunished folks ruin the nation.

Is where resilience is preferred.

Is where any dream becomes valid.

Is where all businesses thrive.

Is where the future of the nation lays.

The pride of the powerful lingers.

Toddlers aspire to work there.

Art beckons even in the nightlife.

God watches over its mortals.

What happens in your city that makes it magical?



List: Africa’s Best Kept Secrets!

This post is in response to Discover-prompts-day-29-List by Ben Huberman.

Kenya has a rich diversity of climate, natural resources, wildlife and habitats of it’s people with their rich cultures. It’s not possible to see and appreciate Kenya in a hurry, and therefore one needs to decide on one attraction at a time.

1. MARA SERENA SAFARI LODGE Located at the very centre of the famous ‘Mara Triangle’ of the world-renowned Masai Mara National Reserve, the Mara Serena Safari Lodge is the ultimate safari destination. Set high on a bush-cloaked hill with long views over the savannah and down to the winding coils of the hippo-filled Mara River, it stands centre-stage to one of Africa’s most dramatic wildlife arenas, with a ringside seat for the ‘greatest wildlife show on earth’, the legendary migration of the wildebeest.

The Windsor Golf Hotel & Country Club  is an impressive Victorian style hotel overlooking a spectacular 18-hole championship golf course with tastefully decorated rooms.

3. Diamonds Dream of Africa Welcome to Diamonds Dream of Africa, where the enchanting force of nature melds with the exotic Indo-Arabic architecture to create a hypnotic charm, which, in Swahili, is known as bembeleza.

5. Mount Kenya

Mt Kenya is Africa’s second-highest peak but it stands in no mountain’s shadow when it comes to trekking. Its many peaks offer some of the best snow-capped ascents in the world’s wildest continent.While hiking in Africa does come with a cost, climbing Mount Kenya is a great alternative to Kilimanjaro for those on a shoestring budget.

I hope ya’ll love Kenya now, the narrow list notwithstanding.


Street Life in Kenya Now!

#street #curfew #COVID19KE

The spread of COVID-19 has changed how cities the world over operate, but Kenya’s cities are perhaps unique in the fact that police brutality has led to more deaths than the pandemic itself. Below is a clip on how pressing the matter is in the streets of Nairobi after the government introduced a dusk-to-dawn curfew.
