Yours truly is about to embark on a much awaited summer vacation back home. Nothing beats the annual summer trip back to the bustle of Nairobi and weekend trips to my “ancestral homeland” of Siaya. The only difference is that unlike back in my undergrad days this time vacation doesn’t really mean no work. Grad school tends to follow you everywhere.
Expect stories of my experiences in Nairobi and Siaya. I am especially looking forward to being home for the Kenyan referendum on August 4th.
One Item Vacation Reading List: Tolstoy’s War and Peace (this is the only non-academic book I am bringing along, I have got to finish reading it this time… hopefully)
