Life in Kenya today is a far cry from 'Out of Africa' where Karen Blixen struggled on her farm at the foot of the Ngong Hills. Nairobi is a tech hub with a young population and a growing middle class. The coffee is great, the economy continues to grow, the property industry is booming and infrastructure might be struggling to keep up but important strides have been made. Kenya is still an extremely exciting place to live; a vibrant capital, world class safari within easy reach and boasting some of the best beaches in the world. Who could ask for more?
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.
