Born in Nyeri and grew up in Magadi Soda where to date, I consider it the best hottest (literaly) place for children to grow up in. Back then, this small town had only one bus that did only one back and forth trip to Nairobi daily. If one overslept, that was it. One had to wait till the next day. The situation was so bad, that one had to make sure that the bus driver knew you were traveling, so that he would hoot loudly from a far at 4:00am! This is all in the past now …
