The time is 5am, its really chilly outside. We’ve just woken up even before the sleep could completely rejuvenate us. But none of us wants to seem the odd one out. Not when that portrays a slack in your prayer life. You see, we were waking up to pray. At 5am. It just was. NoContinue reading “Takawiri Island”

Nairobi National Park
I’m sure you’ve heard the most interesting thing about this park.. Its the only park in the world within a city. Like all around it ,its surrounded by infrastructure of one type or another. Which is a plus for a city because rarely, or rather it has never been done before in the world thatContinue reading “Nairobi National Park”
I’m falling in love with this city. Its really hard not to. Everything about it is just on point! So I had always heard about Kampala and Kigali being Cities of hills or something of the sort. In my head, I understood Rwanda to be a country of many hills. What I didn’t expect atContinue reading “Kigali”
Language barrier in Rwanda?
In my head I thought Rwandans speak Kiswahili. Then after a small search as I was preparing myself to come, I realised they don’t. They speak English and Kinyarwanda. So I thought ‘no problem, we’ll communicate using English, right?’. Well shock on me. So I arrived and had a set of around 4 hotels IContinue reading “Language barrier in Rwanda?”
I got a tattoo today. It was time anyway. The damn thing was chasing me every time I was in town.

It was the only thingContinue reading “Tattoo”

Its almost mother like. Reminding me the things I’m supposed to do and park and prepare. Today will be spent doing last minute preparations.Continue reading “Travelling alone? “
Young, free and alive.
As an adult, losing the ability to dream is easy. And regaining it is way harder. I was reading something on a lady doing Bikozulu’s writing masterclass, and she said something very interesting. When she retires in a few years time, she wants to start baking. And as of now, she has absolutely no ideaContinue reading “Young, free and alive. “
I once read somewhere, that if you want to motivate yourself everyday, write your own eulogy. Like write what you want people to say of you when you die. The accomplishments you had. Though I have never done so, that lesson stuck with me. Not the bit of what people will say about you, butContinue reading “That day. “
I’m looking at your pictures when you were twenty. Exactly two years ago. You seem so happy. There is a radiance about you in them. Some sort of determination. You went for what you wanted. It wasn’t necessarily what was best for you. But it made you happy. It made you become alive for theContinue reading “Happy birthday.”
