The Kenyan way of life

Gunjan Goswami

The Kenyan way of life is something that one has to experience to understand the true meaning of ‘peaceful living’. I was fortunate enough to have a truly rural Kenyan experience. 

The journey to Busia was a long long drive, it took us over 10 hrs to reach Busia from Nairobi. Busia borders Bunayala, which is on the coast of Lake Victoria. Before leaving Nairobi I was told that Busia is the district headquarters (or maybe I had misheard), and therefore I had imagined a big, well developed and well connected town. Busia was none of those, the road to Busia was terrible, a 45 minute drive, took us over 2 hrs on the road going to Busia. Busia town was a junction of four roads with a small supermarket on one corner and lots of road side vendors.

The town was never very crowded (by India standards) and was isolated by 7 in the evening. From the brief description above one might think of Busia as a very small and dull town and maybe that is true too but I had an amazing 4 days in this dull, small town. I was staying in a hotel on the highway and training all day on the first day. The other three days I travelled to the interiors of Busia to visit the villages where the survey was taking place. The view and people of the villages made up for the bad bad roads. Busia is simply beautiful- with miles and miles of sugarcane farms, isolated villages, big schools, small town centers, no traffic and lots of boda bodas (the local transport which is a bicycle with a big back seat). Most households in the villages were very poor, with no electricity and direct water connections. The children in all villages were either scared or fascinated to see me; they had never seen a person like me with long black hair and light skin. No doubt the attention I got in the villages was overwhelming.

 During my three days of field visits I also went to schools Bunayala and port Victoria. One would again imagine the port to be jostling with activity, but port Victoria was just the opposite, with clean water, few fishing boats and Uganda on the other side of the lake. I was lucky to visit on the day of the port market where one could get just about anything, from fresh fish to high heels all on the roadside.

I think what really made Busia a very pleasant stay was the lifestyle of the people there. No one was ever in a hurry! And that is a way of life there (in fact all over in Kenya). Work happens at its own pace, no rash driving, honking, breaking queues, rushing through meals. It was good to be away from the hustle and bustle of Delhi and enjoy the quite of Busia. I wish I could get back a  little of the ‘Busia life’ to Delhi……

  14. The zombie heist film, also released last weekend in theaters, is Snyder’s big return to the undead after his 2004 remake of zombie maestro George Romero’s “Dawn of the Dead.” To care about the story in Zombie Army 4 is misguided, and generally feels like more effort than the dev team expects of you. Zombie Army 4 can and likely will be played out of sequence when you’re jumping into its nine hour-long (or longer) levels because the nature of its matchmaking system doesn’t seem to prioritize where you left off. Ultimately the game survives this disarray because most of its mechanics work well and it’s paced relentlessly, not to mention it benefits from the almost unanimously true adage of “everything’s better in co-op”. Parents need to know that Yahtzee with Buddies Dice is a dice game for iOS and Android devices. The game has no questionable content, though players can send messages to their competition, which could include inappropriate comments. Players can also watch ads or spend real-world money to purchase bonus rolls and other extras for gameplay. Read the developer’s privacy policy for details on how your (or your kids’) information is collected, used, and shared, and any choices you may have in the matter, and note that privacy policies and terms of service frequently change.

  16. Не будем забывать и о народной медицине. Для того чтобы не кончать быстро, рекомендуется принимать отвар из смеси мяты, пустырника и душицы. Ну, а представители традиционной медицины в таких случаях, как правило, назначают дапоксетин. Ответ на этот вопрос очень простой: столько, сколько мужчина хочет, чтобы он продолжался. Т.е. главным критерием, по которому оценивается наличие или отсутствие у мужчины синдрома преждевременной эякуляции — это его способность контролировать продолжительность полового акта и завершать его (эякулировать) тогда, когда он захочет это сделать. «Скорой помощью» в вопросе продления полового акта считаются пролонгаторы. Они подходят представителям сильного пола, нуждающимся в мгновенном результате или быстро кончающих по причине врожденной проблемы преждевременной эякуляции. Способов сделать половой акт более длительным, приятным для обоих партнеров существует очень много. Некоторые из них достаточно нетрадиционные, многие объясняются с врачебной точки зрения, есть народные методики, поэтому очень важно не навредить своему телу в домашних условиях, а использовать один из семи действительно проверенных, в которых стоит разобраться более подробно.
