The shops opened again today as Nairobi gradually returned to normal (or what passes for normal). A second day of demonstrations failed to materialise and it looks increasingly as if the Kenyan opposition politcians have played their hand poorly.
It was another day racing around Kibera and other flashpoints trying to gauge the general mood (broadly, a bit tired of all the trouble). And I missed the shops. At the moment my entire larder contains:
Pint of milk x 2, which I had the foresight to buy yesterday from a garage
Marks & Spencer Christmas cake, slightly battered from its journey from Kent, via Greece, to Nairobi
One bottle of ouzo
This, I think, could be a very good night.
