It seems the city council’s efforts to introduce a proper drainage system to the junction of Church and Rhapta roads have failed. As we’re now in Kenya’s “short” rain season it looks like I’ll have to get used to tip toeing around this small lagoon for a few more weeks.
This is the time of year to remember what it used to be like before you got a car… be courteous to all the people on the road! Slow down!
Something that boggles my mind is people getting caught in the rain without an umbrella. I’ve seen it a lot in the past week now that the Kenyan summer is over and the rainy season has finally arrived. What stumps me is that the “long rains” in Kenya happen EVERY year in March/April—it’s not a surprise, people, it happens every year at almost exactly the same time!
The refugees who have been sleeping on my street have vanished. I came home a few days ago and was surprised to see all of their stuff was gone and they were nowhere to be found. The only thing remaining was one of the soggy cardboard boxes they used to sleep on.
