sooo maybe i have an opportunity
« on: April 13, 2017, 06:15:34 pm »
so as the heading states i might have an opportunity to move to Kenya. still early days but it looks quite enticing  :biggrin: who knows the ins and outs of Kenya? the lifestyle, costs, pros and cons.
let rip so i can get a better idea of what may lie in wait :patch:
i only work to support my hobbies!!

so if it happens it will be in a town called Eldoret, apparently founded by a couple of Boer families  :biggrin: its fairly close to lake Victoria so is quite far north.
waiting for the dude to fly in and talk the talk :laughing4:

Great place, and not close to any LRA or other rebel groups. We got most of our fresh vegetables from there when I worked in Turkana Kenya (that is real North) You will be close to Uganda which is great. Hope you get it and yes try to make contact with Osadaba (not sure about the spelling) Many Kenyan cowboys - that is the name for the local whiteys that never fleed the Country during unrest and they love to brag about 4th and 5th generation 😂 Learn to speak Swahilie, not a difficult language
