What I did
A short input to release my aggravation and then we're off to paradise… so Iīm surrounded by people that donīt want to disappoint me or canīt admit that some things donīt work, so after four weeks of hearing "yes! Itīs at the house" or “yeas I have paid for this or that” and then finding out nothing has been done and nothing works as it could do…now there is an expression “T.I.A”... This is Africa, but my problemīs not that things take time (as the expression reefers to)… my problem is that people actually lie to my face to make me happy at that very moment, without thinking about whatīs going to happen in two hours when I find out… so two days ago I finally had it, total melt down and for you who known me the past ten year know that in that time it hasnīt happen…until now, a loooots of anger came out and so far (a day) it seems to work things are getting done and when not they say so
So the other day we took a short trip to paradise, itīs a short drive from my house itīll take you 20 min on a dirt road up the mountain passing banana plantations and sheds that provide some shelter to the people living there, for those who are not Masaai there is a fee to get in to paradise it will cost you USD 20 to get in to the paradise area and you will also need to be accompanied by a guide that in return will provide a safe visit and lunch(not apples).
I can see the addf something like “Paradise the place to be” The walk starts by entering a magic Cedar forest with bushes of exotic and delicious berries, sized like small strawberries bright red on raspberry bushes and black raspberries mmmmmm… after a nice “walk in the park” you descend more or less straight down, you wouldnīt think thatīs the way to paradise but it is, getting to the bottom of the ravine and following the creek, thereīs walls of rainforest on both sides with fern and leafs bigger than I am, butterflies, birds and monkeys… finaly thereīs a passage between to walls of moss overgrown rocks looks like it was taken from the setup of “lord of the rings” and on the other side of that wow! There it was! Now the waterfall is about 60 meters but itīs not massive amount of water so itīs not that annoying sound that use to be… the rainforest pours in over the rift of this crater 60 meters deep maybe 50 across and the walls around you, covered in fern and plants with huge leafs just goes vertical straight up…. Paradise, Iīm made it home! Nice to be back…
