IT'S TIME FOR AFRICA: Would you like your meet from here?

Two years ago, I visited Kenya with my dad and his Rotary group, they were on a charity trip. It was an incredible experience, saw lots of places I would have never have had the chance to see like hospitals, orphanages, schools, lots of African animals and even their culture.

We visited the slums one day. Whoa, a very different experience. We walked around with secret police in front of us and behind us, not that I really noticed or knew that they were secret police until the end of the walk. The roads in the slums are very bumped as people go to the toilet in little plastic bags and throw it out onto the road. They live in some incredibly bizarre housing and all of it is so small. It was kind of like their own little weird village with strange shops in places and people sitting on the road on edge of their shanties selling stuff. It was busy by day but I wouldn't like to think of some of the horror stories that would go on there at night.

Nevertheless, below is a photo I took of a 'butcher' that exists in the shanty. Not too sure if I'd like my meat from there.....

Would you like your meat from here? by Sarah  Lawrence


  1. Great Photograph! I love the name... maximum supersonic, just what you want in a butcher!!!

  2. Wow Sarah, that sounds like an amazing experience. I would love to visit Kenya one day.

  3. this must have been such an experience. when i go to india i also experience poverty first hand and its really so sad to see people in those circumstances.


  4. Hmmm... I agree, that meat might be a little iffy. Maybe see if they have a McDonalds instead ;-)

    Happy Saturday Dear!
