I went to Wago some time back but it was not the same. I heard Woodie still exists but not in the way we remember it. Alas.

How did I guess Malindi would strongly feature in your meme:-)

These answers are making my day...
Is fitina a kiswahili word?    

By Blogger Nyakehu at 10:29 am

Mshairi and Mama Junkyard Malindi was definitely going to feature in my favourite places, Fitina is kiswahili word like if you go into the root of the language - it is a hybrid of arabic and bantu and if l choose to say fitina then it becomes kiswahili!! Wait till the language police get hold of this

I was eating boiled yam today and I missed ngwaces. Or is it guache.

Yams are nice too. Do we have them back home? Does anyone know?

Now I gotta go to Malindi. Any places I should check out?

Ms K anywhere in Malindi is fine there are some wonderful coffee shops which you will not find in the toursist trail and at times they even frown on serving women but the coffee is good. I have been trying to post a comment on your blog but it is impossible.

Miss K
Yes we do have yams in Kenya (I hope that was your question)
My uncle is a big fan (I personally detest them)
I believe the gikuyu call them gikuwa (sp)
