summer east africa fragments

move 2 years of life in boston to a basement, flight to nairobi to conference with ministry of finance, ratty nights in downtown nairobi, lions sleeping fitfully after thrashing a water buffalo in nakuru, 3AM shadows at kenya-uganda border, the emaciated face of a police office is kisumu, a full mouthful of bujagali road dust while mountain biking, tattooed, nervous looking russians playing high stakes poker, sunset glints of the nile after running 20km.

the denouement: 10 days of good books, bad swahili, fishing and photo projects in zanzibar starting tomorrow, hopefully without the tropical illness-laden haze of last time.
