I love the Coast bus, the diversity of life experience along the way. We stopped for a break along the notorious Nairobi/Mombasa road and I watched the misfortune of tavellers beside a clapped out matatu with a flat tyre.
Somewhere between 1987-89 I took the picture on the left of Lamu fort (built between 1813 and 1821) . For Xmas 1990 I was given the book “Visions of Nomads” by Wilfred Thesiger and in it found the image on the right. I’m not precisely sure of the date for the Thesiger image – minus however long it takes for a coconut tree to double in height!
The Daily Nation newspaper: “Tyson began the third round with a furious attack. With forty second remaining in the round Holyfield got Tyson in a clinch. Tyson rolled his head above Holyfield’s shoulder and bit Holyfield on his right ear, avulsing a one-inch piece of cartilage from the top before spitting it out onto the ring floor.”
