Hi Jikoni, it will be great to have your input.

Haven't personally seen anyone else on the board from Africa.

It would be fun for you to tell us all what people eat in your country.

All the best,
Alex R.

Hi everyone, I am back!After over a month away, I still didn't get enough of Kenya. Yet strangely, I am happy to be back to 'reality'. Mombasa, We stayed at Fig Tree in the Mara, it was awesome, we love it. At the coast, we stayed in a friend's private house in Vipingo! the cook was brilliant.Will post some recipes. We had fresh seafood brought in by the fishermen every day. Crab, Squid, Lobsters, Octopus, White snapper and on one morning, a baby shark that we turned down. Went to 'Pirates ' one night, great beach bar even though my favorite is '40 thieves' the Nakumat in Nyali is good, helps a lot so one doesn't have to go into town. I hope everyone had a great summer or winter depending of where everyone is.
