Anyway, if you missed last year’s summary post, catch up here –> (Highlights 2016) Maybe I could make this a thing, reviewing every year. What do you think?

Birding at the Nairobi National Museum

When you mention the Nairobi National Museum, what comes to most people’s minds is the exhibits that give a glance into life in the olden days. But there’s something else that the Museum holds- abundant birdlife. Did you know? There are over 1000 bird species in Kenya, 600 being in Nairobi alone!

My Other Love

Hey there. If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you may know me as a photographer. But like most creatives, I have other skills as well. Some people call it ‘the artist’s curse’ because with so many skills, one tends to get confused about where to focus their energy. An artist may have 5 or more artistic talents and asking them to pick one is like asking a mother to choose her favourite child. (Although some people readily play favourite with their kids). But I digress. Read on to find out what one of my other talents is… 🙂 Continue reading “My Other Love”
