Moving house, whether across the seas or across town, is considered to be one of the 3 most stressful things that you will do in your lifetime. But with proper planning, guidance and professional help it will be considerably easier & less stressful. MOVING TO KENYA Considering that Kenya has been welcoming expatriates to into to the country to work for years, you would think that there would be easy and suitable systems in place. Well, no. This is definitely not the case. The Kenyan customs systems is complex and notoriously inefficient.

The World Passes 400 PPM Threshold. Permanently. That’s carbon dioxide damage.

Posted on September 28th, 2016


In the centuries to come, history books will likely look back on September 2016 as a major milestone for the world’s climate.

That all but ensures that 2016 will be the year that carbon dioxide officially passed the symbolic 400 ppm mark, never to return below it in our lifetimes, according to scientists. Because carbon pollution has been increasing since the start of the Industrial Revolution and has shown no signs of abating, it was more a question of “when” rather than “if” we would cross this threshold. The inevitability doesn’t make it any less significant, though. September is usually the month when carbon dioxide is at its lowest after a summer of plants growing and sucking it up in the northern hemisphere. As fall wears on, … Continue reading

TCB’s Miscellaneous Ramblings – August-September 2015

Posted on July 31st, 2015


TCB’s Miscellaneous Ramblings – August-September 2015 The new security regime at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) is something else. I’m all for a secure environment, but this is over-kill, with due apologies for the K-word. On arrival at the airport, more the entrance to it, while still in your car, you are greeted with what seems to be a state-of-the-art all singing all dancing security apparatus – it certainly looks very high-tech. Evidently it does the business, it scans your car from the underside plus there is a side-scan – it is all seeing I’m told. However there is a major fly in the ointment. Evidently it only scans cars, their contents and the driver. All passengers must exit, cross over 5-6 lanes of busy traffic to be hand frisked by security personnel. You then re-join your vehicle on the other side. Whole busloads of passengers together with your guests … Continue reading
