We’re still talking about Mombasa, and it’s not gonna stop with this or last post, just a Disclaimer, because by now you’ve seen photos of Mombasa after its transformation and y’all can agree that breath-taking is an understatement! The new look comes with serenity and peace in and around Mombasa, that plus the ocean breeze, oh so bliss!

It’s hard to believe that the ocean, whipped by winds during a storm, can ever return to a state of serenity, where its surface looks like grass…that’s how Mombasa has transformed! From old buildings to fresh new buildings in just a snap! Speaking of serenity, that’s how I can describe my last one month. I’ll write more about it next week on a new post.

Contrary to the heat of the atmosphere and the various issues we are dealing with, like garbage and sewage situation, there is calmness and fresh air in the atmosphere. You get into town and you don’t wanna live, that is me and I know so many people agree to that.

On the other hand, this is one of my favorite photo of the entire shoot. Look at that poise, the lighting and background, my facial expression; everything about this photo is amazing. See how Klenses is good and natural at his work, and gets everything right effortlessly?! I thought you should know. And again, my outfit matches the city color, lol!

Living in the tropics, this is one look you adopt because the weather dictates. Usually I’d dress like this for an evening hangout with friends or during the day which will transition into the night. I wear long sleeves when I know I’ll be out into the night because I get cold very easily. Yes, I where sweaters in Mombasa despite the high temperature so expect me in anything long sleeved at any time, even during the day, to protect my skin against the hot sun. Shorts are my all time favorite, I’m always in a pair almost everyday a week.

Enjoy the photos, see you next week. Ciao.
Whole outfit Thrifted.

Btw, this old post office post will be used as a County suggestion box, how awesome! We’ll now get to share our thoughts and speak our minds.
