Ms. G – The theory of Shit
As warned
before, I will continue my, for most people boring, dive through the muddy

a society actually come to cho...

Events
Kenyans
seem to be very fond of big time events and ceremonies. Lately, I’ve witnessed
two. Despite of

The Company

Sunday
I’m on the
countryside here, which I’m not used to being in for longer periods. Time get’s
