TCB’s Miscellaneous Ramblings – August-September 2015

Posted on July 31st, 2015

TCB

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

Horses helping children to cope with disabilities

Posted on July 23rd, 2015

RDA

In a large, grassy field tucked inside a residential area in Karen, children as young as four years are enjoying a session of horse riding. But this is no ordinary riding class, and these are no ordinary children, because every one of them has a physical, mental or learning disability. “We have a variety of disabilities, but there is a high proportion of cerebral palsy and autistic sufferers,” explains Sue Anderson, a trained horse riding instructor and founder of the charity, Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) Kenya. For more than 20 years, Anderson and a group of volunteers have provided equine-assisted therapy for children, mostly from impoverished backgrounds, who suffer from developmental disorders, including muscular dystrophy, spinal injuries, polio, emotional and social delays. The 45-minute riding class is led by an instructor, and every rider has three supporters — a syce (a horse attendant) who leads the horse, and … Continue reading

Word of Mouth mourn legendary Chef Marcus Mitchell along with the rest of Nairobi

Posted on June 29th, 2015

Tribute

Marcus Mitchell, 1975-2015 Once in a rare while in this life we meet someone who isn’t just that clichéd ‘larger than life’ but who seems to be life—to occupy his own warm center of the planet in such a way that he makes his own at-mosphere. Someone who so thoroughly loves the life he is living that he invites others to participate in its wild, risk-taking, heart-thumping ride and find the insane joy in it. These rare souls don’t spend their days stepping on others to reach the top of the heap. Instead, they inhabit a place so completely that they become its Genius—and then open their arms and invite others in to take and eat. Such a man was Marcus Mitchell, head chef at Talisman Restaurant from 2011-2015; winner of the Taste Awards Chef of the Year title in Kenya 2013-2014; and, down to his bones, a man who … Continue reading
