In 2016, many things happened, from the Olympics in Rio, to the Great Panda becoming no longer endangered. Brexit happened, Trump got elected. Cuba opened up for tourists and the first self driving taxi was invented.
Something else happened in 2016, pay close attention because this affects you. A family living in the suburbs of Nairob, left the city to the market town of Nanyuki, 200KM North of Nairobi.
Nanyuki is known for two things; mwisho wa reli and the Equator.
Mwisho wa Reli is to mean end of the railway line. It’s the last colonial town Northwards that bordered the beginning of the Northern Frontier district. It therefore follows that the Lunatic Express, 1900s rail transport would be severed in Nanyuki.
The Equator separates the Earths Northern and Southern hemisphere. It’s at Nanyuki, Equator where you can do experiments that show the Coriolis Effect. Where still water in jug moves anticlockwise in the south and 3 meters apart it moves clockwise for the North.
The railway had a huge economic effect. This marked the areas where modern civilisation was concentrated on by the colonialists. This resulted to the marginalisation of the Kenya’s North.
2016, after Mike and his family had settled. They began to discover the hidden gems to be found, in Kenya’s North of Equator.
