Hot Pot Table

Rain Drop, Hot Pot*

*I apologise for the title. When is Nairobi going to make up its mind about this weather? If you’ve suffered from a flu in the last month, raise your hand. I was on the verge of getting sick for about two weeks. Thankfully I fought it off with a lot […]

The Cure
