Youth and sunshine

Sitting in the bus my mind just flashed to this scene of me when I was twentysomething, it was a hot day then another flashback of us driving to Soy Club to use the swimming pool or going to Hill School pool during the holidays. It is funny how I never learnt to swim while at Limuru Girls' as we had the rainy season for nine months out of three. I do not know if any of my family remember any of our sojourns to those places. Also remembering Nandi Hills when we used to go for long walks with the Sally our dog. I remember one time we walked and walked and walked. Hey Uaridi, there is a picture of a tea plantation and everytime I see it it reminds me of two leaves and a bud. I don't think this is nostalgia but sheer homesickness.

Hey Nyakehu,
I also attended Limuru girls. I do not know what year you graduated, but i may know you. The funny thing is that i also did not learn how to swim while at choxs :)

Swiiming at Soy Club was fun! And then akina Bobo would take us to chase giraffes. One trip to Soy Club sticks in my mind - Baba told us that if we caught sijui how many grasshoppers he would buy us chocolate. We actually did catch loads and I don't remember being scared yet now in Belize I see one and I freeze.

I remember Nandi Hills - I think it is one of the best childhood memories I keep close to my heart.
