TGIF #45

Everywhere a butchery, originally uploaded by sbmilagros.

Driving between national parks, we passed through lots of little villages in Kenya, with their version of strip malls.

The business names were a little… different. We started writing down the funniest ones. Note that somehow the word “butchery” is funny, no matter what goes with it. Strangely, Tanzanian business did not have the same¬†quirkiness.

Here are our favorites:

  • Amazing Funeral Services
  • Caskets Galore
  • Late Chemist
  • Double Vision Bookshop
  • Waki Motel
  • Amazon¬†Accommodations
  • Plan B Highway Shop
  • Happy Go Butchery
  • By Faith Agrochemicals
  • Twine Towerz
  • Highway Butchery
  • Divine Providence Computers
  • Best Lady Hair Salon
  • God’s Power Shop & Cafe
  • Pivot Cool Bar & Butchery
  • Silent Bar
  • Travellers’ Butchery
  • Nairobi Hardware (in a tiny village)
  • Precious Dry Cleaner
  • Bull Head Butchery
  • Club Destiny Cafe & Butchery
  • Kaka Butchery
  • Meet & Greet Cafe & Butchery
  • Honey Pot Bar
  • Anointed Candy Shop

Just resting…

Cheetah, originally uploaded by sbmilagros.

Sorry, I’ve been taking another break from blogging. The safari was incredible, and also pretty strenuous. I’m happy to say that even with transAtlantic flights & a few 10 hr rides over bumpy roads, my leg (and the rest of me) did pretty well.

I’m getting ready for the 2nd trip to BC since we’ve been back, this one to Salmon Arms’ Roots & Blues festival.

In the meantime, I’m trying to catch up on posting all the Africa photos. Here’s a start…¬†(Check out the sets: Safari, Nairobi and Africa, on the right-hand side.)
