Down the Lunatic Express

Howdy Good People! The time doth ripe for another time piece.Who knew I would use Shakespeare in life..Oh, and if you’re wondering what I meant above, well, that makes the two of us!

But, well. Let’s get to the Jayraini Travels! Our journey took us right at the heart  of the City, The Nairobi Railways Museum. We had previously heard good things about the place and we set out to get the vintage experience.

I was tempted to pull a Titanic, too bad Jack wasn’t with me..The Pirates of the Caribbean could also apply, aaarrr!

DSCN8429 vintage perfect

So I took up the next best option, sit down and stare outside the window thinking about life.

Something really interesting happened here..So a Briton heard about the tale of the Man eaters of Tsavo and set out to make a name of himself by killing them. He had it all planned out.He was to leave the door open so as to lure the lions in the cabin and shot them from a strategic position. Well, that happened in his mind ’cause the most awkward (and dangerous) thing happened.He fell asleep.The lions came in only to find their prey ready (or sleeping) in wait for them. They grabbed him  by the neck and devoured him out in the woods.A truly, tragic story.

We ran in to this awesome artist, Sam Githinji at the Art Center, located in the same compound as the museum. He described himself as an expressionist artist and his pieces were pretty awesome.
