i’ve just seen the video, and i was very impressed. I think people like you, who work hard in such a harsh conditions and still find the strength to share your thoughts on a blog deserve much more from this disgraced world. I wish you and your family all the best.

I watched your video last night and it reminded me so well of the daily struggle for so many Kenyans in trying to earn a decent living in both the rural and city areas.
Last year I visited Arrow Web Hospital in Kayole Soweto . I have been helping Bram, the hospital project co-ordinator with fundraising and management issues. This was my first trip to Nairobi and I must confess I never took a trip on a mutatu!
I look forward to following your blog and will certainly be really interested to read your book
Very best wishes James to you and your family for a very happy and prosperous New Year from a mzungu in Scotland.
Have you seen this video from a great young Kenyan on You Tube? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTFq9p6WWpk
