I am the mistakes you decide to keep. Experience me and you’ll be whole. I say everything in silence. I run away without leaving home. I delight. I am a daughter of freedom. Yes, you’re right. I am art.index3

Every time I walk in the streets of Nairobi I am reminded just how mysterious art is. The loud graffiti on walls, the monuments and even the congestion of people each moving in different direction, communicates depth that only an art mind can understand.  You add culture and right there, you will have gotten unmediated pure pleasure that will make you smile at strangers and be a do gooder.


Today I am all about that Maasai market vibe.  I don’t know why it took me this long to talk about it because it brings colour into my life and not to mention, I have so many relatives there who chill out reading my pieces as they sell what grandpa made. If you have not been there yet, you need to start living a little bit more. The rich collection of African arts and crafts will brighten your days.

Pieces of advice though, please make sure you bargain and don’t be easily satisfied. Walk around, get to see everything that is offered then decide from there. Make sure you have a budget and stick to it however hard it may be.index6

The venue for the maasai market rotates between different shopping centres and other locations as indicated in the schedule below. It operates from 9:00am in the morning until evening at 6:00pm.

Now go and get yourself lovely dresses, bangles and all those good things. I don’t want to keep slaying alone.index4
