TCB’s Miscellaneous Ramblings

Posted on June 27th, 2017

 Travel advisories are the bane of most developing nations, Kenya being no exception. Always viewed from inside the countries as ‘over-the-top’ with no clear vision and a way to pump the danger allowances for embassy staff based in said country. Viewed by the cretins that impose these advisories it is simply a way of protecting their citizens and making them aware of the dangers they perceive exist in said country. If they didn’t tell and something terrible happened they would be held to book, an I-told-you-so is a much better way of protecting ones rear-end. None of this is news I know, but leads to my next story. ‘The European Parliament has voted to end visa-free travel for Americans within the EU. It comes after the US failed to agree visa-free travel for citizens of five EU countries – Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Poland and Romania – as part of a reciprocity … Continue reading

Posted on June 21st, 2017

Originally written in 1865 by mathematician Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is a tale of a young girl falling down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by cryptic and crazy creatures; the story has survived many decades and seen many adaptations. This year, The Academy of Dance and Art are proud to present Nairobi with ‘Looking for Alice‘! Follow the running rabbit and hop, skip and jump your way into our Wonderland…filled with curious curtsying cats, lizards leaping over ladders, tiny twirling teapots, collections of contracting caterpillars and beware of the rotten Red Queen! Let’s look for Alice and help her find herself! The show is not all ballet – it comprises of musical theatre and gymnastics and there is also singing, showcasing all aspects of Performing Arts.  The wonderful Davina Leonard will be the narrator. This promises to be a superb show – enjoy!    

Finding your own happy by Africa Expat Wives Club

Posted on June 20th, 2017

 Expat life. Finding your own happy… Expat life uproots and unsettles us. Friendships prove to be transient as people move on and it hurts that family are far away. As migrants, we often question if and when to go ‘home’ but in the meantime, it’s important to be happy. Life can throw out more than a few curve balls. You may not be exactly where you thought you’d be, or doing what you had imagined and your circumstances may not sit well with you at a given time but whatever the situation, it’s important to find your own happy. Horrific events in London over the past weeks put day-to-day life in sharp focus and remind me of the dreadful Westgate mall attack here in Nairobi in 2013. During the aftermath of Westgate we heard of threats of terror attacks weekly, even daily, mostly via anonymous SMS/text messages that were circulating … Continue reading
