March 21, 2013


It doesn’t exist. At least not anywhere within probably a 2000 mile radius. I figure if it is not here in Nairobi (largest urban area in sub saharan Africa, apart from South Africa), then in all likelihood I have to get on a plane to find it. Going dairy free in the US didn’t rob […]
