Riko cooking, sewing and other disasters

My name is Martina a young adventurerous mother. I live in Nairobi, Kenya, together with my husband Simon and our son Giovanni. This blog is made for friends, relatives and curious people who want to be updated about our adventures. I know you are asking yourselves: what is Riko? Riko in Kikuyu (my husband's mother tongue) means fireplace. The fireplace is the place where people cook, stay together and share the life. It was where the grandparents used to transmit to the children their culture and traditions. I imagine this blog like such a place, a warm meeting point where I tell you what I discover , cook, burn and destroy day by day.

The Sun Can Be Yellow

My name is Paul Faraway, writer and adventurer. This blog is my own personal space where I share my life in Liberia from a singular expat point of view. It is also where I immerse myself in the burning light of African literature through brutally honest book reviews. You can also find on this blog african proverbs through sentences displayed on the back of Liberian taxis, as well as a lot of african music. Welcome to The Sun can be Yellow.

Rodrigues via Mauritius

This blog is meant for everyone interested in Rodigues although it is not necessarily only about Rodrigues, sometimes it is just about us living there or about topics I am interested in, unfortunately often enough with some delay. Every day life scenes, wildlife, photography, reports from visitors....whatever. The blog is kept mainly in German with English (sometimes also French) translation: German because we wanted to make German speaking folks aware of this remote island of which noone had ever heard before in Berlin when we were leaving to live here which was nearly 18 year ago, English because we wanted the local people to be able to understand as well, and all the others who just happen to speak English, including Rodriguans abroad or the circumnavigators on their way to Rodrigues.... French from time to time when it's about a topic matching a visitor or local or the other way round... By the way, it is not an ad blog, so you will search in vain for hotel prices and other deals.
