Some of my favourite Kenyan shop signs

We have found the Kenyan people so warm and kind and generous. They have provided for us out here and will go out of their way to help.

But we also have to admit that some of the wayside shops and hotel names made us chuckle. Some of these you have to look carefully –  we hope that you enjoy them too.

There were others but often we saw them as we were driving. Some such as “Helmet of Salvation Hair dressers” or “Pulp college of Accountancy”

    Hello, I am Caryl’s friend from Ilfracombe and have been following your time in Kenya avidly on a daily basis.

    What a fantastic and humbling experience for you all! I am sure it will change all your lives in one way or another, leaving a lasting impression of so many emotions and blessings. Phyllis is a remarkable young lady and one with such courage.

    Thank you for this means of “being there with you”. I look forward to Caryl coming here and telling me in person all about her wonderful experience! Mary

    * Shitaho Primary School
    * Baraka (blessings) Hotel – not exactly 5-star
