There are times that you can tell that your man or wife is bored to death and she/he needs some breath of fresh air blown into her mind. On the other hand you are clueless as to where you can take him/her.
Especially when she is a woman, your woman, and she is pregnant. No need to worry, Nairobi is abuzz with good places to hang out in especially on Saturday or a Sunday afternoon. You need a guy who will just point his finger in the right direction.
That guy is me! Call me Uncle…Uncle Jeff..some people in the office call me ”Kijana fupi round”, because that is what I am. I am short and stout, and I love exploring Nairobi. Chepsikor the guy who writes politics doesnt know Nairobi yet he was the first to call me ”Kijana Fupi Round”.
