Greetings from Kilifi in the dry season – cloudless, hot sunny days. The grass has dried out and farmers’ food stores are running low, so everyone is praying for rain.
The year started with a few minor domestic incidents: theft of exterior electrical cables and security lights, a bednet frame collapsing on top of me in the middle of the night, three weeks without mains water and numerous power cuts to give you a flavour of home life in sleepy Kilifi. Normal services have finally been restored - for now at least.
