Mini-photo Essay: Snippets of my Home Village

As we begin the year, I would like to share some pictures that I took from my home village to give you a feel of where I come from-Nyamira County. That’s because we all know that Nairobi is not your home…

Near the marketplace: Plenty of green to go around




The marketplace


Seeing through their eyesimage


The beautiful sight of one of our neighbours


Using the three stones to boil water for ugali


Sunday morning nap for Cobra the adorable dog


Pumpkin leaves: The before shot


Pumpkin leaves sauteed with onions and tomatoes with a bit of fresh cream: The before serving shot… Yum!!!


Another Kisii delicacy: Managu



About Lillian

I am a proud student of the human experience which provides me with the perfect excuse for being a bibliophile (read: book hoarder) and the unofficial patron of Nairobi Inama bookshops. But in my past life, I was a recorder player. You can also find me on Medium (@lillianyamongo) where I discuss sustainable finance.
