Hi Jikoni, lovely pictures and an equally lovely family. Africa is such a beautiful country and you are blessed to have family and friends that you can go visit. It looks like your kids had a fun time and it's so great to have children who are well traveled and appreciate all types of food (like I see your kids eating and enjoying a whole fish :-))

Thanks everyone for your lovelyy comments.
Chopstix, do you alsoo call them 'tuk tuk'?
Anau, I have no idea what they are called and if at all they have a special name, but now I am curious and will find out.
Yakuta, Actually what happened was, they ordered fish and chips, then they did get a whole fish each and chips! We were amused and I wondered what they would make of it especially going by their sizes. We usually eat whole trout here anyway. they just started tucking into their meal and said it was the best fish ever. Now back in Geneva, I will have to go looking for whole Tilapia. I am looking forward to preparing it actually.

Mudbug, we reached my mum's homestead and there was no football! My son loves football, so we had to find one. My brother helped make one like we used to make as kids. A lot of plastic bags together and a rope around it. the neighbours kids came by to play, it was great. Hey at least when one of them makes it as a star, you can say you saw that photo first!

Hi guys, I am back! I hope you remember me I had a very relaxing time, no computer, very little contact with the outside world except when I chose to talk to my family here in Switzerland once a day. Noone else knew my new Kenyan number. It was great.I had a great time with my mum, sister's brother's uncle's, aunty's, cousin's nieces, nephews and other long distant relations. Was great. Will post recipes of a few things I ate. Didn't cook for the whole time. I have concluded my family love to cook and it wasn't worth fighting for the kitchen to cook. I enjoyed every single meal. My mum found a new way of cooking a type of 'ugali'( Check out 'ugali' in 'African recipes' if you don't remember what 'ugali' is) from Uganda while she was visiting. It was so yummy.
