Yay America!

One of the most thrilling things about going to the Auto show was seeing that America is finally getting something Europe has had for a long time - small delivery vans!

(Yes, I know you're thinking that I'm crazy to get excited about that.)

Europe has had these small vans for literally decades. We get them in 2009. Yay Ford!

Hi !

Thanks for your wonderful blog ! I've spent hours reading it, and I've already learnt loads about Kenya.

Let me introduce myself ; I am French, 24 years old, married, I will graduate in June from a translation school, and I 've benn offered a position in Nairobi as a translator for the Chinese presss agency Xinhua News (Ngong Road, at Rose Avenue (Opposite Kibil)

Post Office Box 30728

Nairobi). I wondered if you could answer some specific questions I have about life in Nairobi, security, money etc... as I don't know anybody living there, and I am a bit worried about taking this job. My questons are of this type : is it possible to live in Nairobi without a car ? Is it possible to live without guards / security systems tec ? Is the area of Ngong road /Rose avenue safe ? If you agree to share some of your experience with me, you could maybe give me your e-mail adress, it would be simpler? Mine is ciboulette02@yahoo.fr

Thanks a lot, and in any cases, congratulations for your blog,

Marie de Langhe
