OK, so it looks pretty. I am warm inside with the central heating blasting away.
But in Kisii, my "business centre", it is a pleasant 25°C, as it is all year round, give or take a couple of degrees. I can live with that.
As I get older, I find that I am less tolerant of the cold. And let's face it, last year's summer in the UK was nothing to shout about.
It was especially nothing to shout about after spending all of March in Kenya and coming home to snow in April - lovely!
This second photo is looking out from my friend's plot over the valley, west of Kisii. Yes, the sky really is that blue, and the countryside is always green.
