My friends' honeymoon

Remember the wedding I went? yeah that one, the couple went to Kenya on a 22day honeymoon. I picked them up from Heathrow the other day.

The last day of their honeymoon they were robbed at gun point, the jamaa was asleep and the chic was having her hair done. There was like sixteen guys in they house (some sort of farewell bash) but they were still robbed off all their mobile phones by four guys wielding guns. Lucky enough the gal managed to hide her wedding ring and in her bra. The funny thing I advised her not to take any expensive jewellery just before they left hence the reason why she slid her ring in her bra!

For someone who had never been to Kenya before she had an experience! She also got typhoid but all in all she had an amazing time and has alot of good stuff to say about Kenya and in Swahili too! The highlight of her trip............eating crocodile meat at the carnivore.

How unfortunate for them!
At least their lives were spared!

Anyone who has experienced robbery with violence knows its traumatizing. I once got robbed by machete wielding thugs and that was scary.
Pole sana to your friend!

That's scary & nasty. Shame on those thugs taking from people who work hard for what they own.
I hope this doesn't spoil their memories of a blissful weddding/honeymoon.
She's learned to speak Swahili? That's impressive!
