Concert at MJC

It is one of those Wednesdays you are tired after a long day at work. You decide to stretch and fill your water bottle at the dispenser on the entrance of the office block(I sit on that corner workstation with a fantastic view if  the green suburbs of Kyuna and Upper Westlands.) As bend to fetch turn the dispenser knob, I hear fantastic melody coming from somewhere I can't tell! I step out of the office to the lift lobby and discover some live music coming down at Michael Joseph Centre conveniently called MJC! The soothing rythm is a treat to my ears and go downstairs to just get to know more. Who does a concert on mid week? Actually Wednesday?

At the reception I meet to wonderful ladies well dressed. One of them stretches a hand to gre
at me and immediately asked  "Concert Imeanza?" I wasn't sure what or how to answer that. I told we get in to confirm status, only to find big names in Jazz Music doing what they know best.

I rushed to my car at the basement, grabbed my camera and came to have my version of fun. Live band music and photography! Enjoy the photos....

Tafaria Castle and Country Lodge

People dream big dreams and receive great visions but only a handful follow them up to fruition. On man went all the way to beat all the odds! Boldly dared to think and act differently. To pursue his dream  and brought to reality Tafaria Castle. The impressive piece of art and architecture sit approximately 73km from Nyeri town on the way to Nyahururu.  I had a rare opportunity to interact with the man behind and his wife as well enjoy the facility. During that period, I did what I love most, making pictures. Please enjoy.

The entrance of the castle invites you to an awesome moment of life time. You kinda get an assurance that you are about to get a treat that will go well down your memory lane.
