Everyone moving from Nairobi to a suburban city has this fear.
However, just a few weeks in and I was totally sold on Thika. It was totally different from Nairobi as expected but in a good way. A way that was unique and nothing like I had expected. It was peaceful and calm with a little twist of fun. I no longer had to wake up at 4 a.m just to get to work at 8. I now could wake up at 7 and be at work promptly. Oh, how I value my sleep. I did not have to push people around for a Matatu and the best part, I only pay 10/= to get to work. You are already sold too!Right??
If not, there is one more thing I liked and still love about Thika, the freshness of the air. Ok, I know sometimes, Bidco decides to pollute the air with a soapy smell but I hardly notice this anymore. There are trees everywhere in town and in the residential areas, it is totally peaceful. Oh, and one more thing, I can never get lost in Thika.
If thats not yet enough for you, just look at the view from my house. These pictures were taken in the morning as I headed to work and am totally sold. Hope you are too.
Beautiful? I know.
Have yourselves a great Thursday and you gotta love Thika!!
