I met a new team today, these guys are to be the Nairobi Fire Wardens. - here is a picture of them
Mike and I trained the team in what fire is, how it starts and how to put it out etc, they were a great bunch, very friendly and asked me alot about the UK economy. They were interested in wages and what the minimum wage was, when I explained this to them they thought WOW that is alot of money, but then I explained the cost of living, mortgages, Council tax, bills etc - they nearly fell off of their chairs. They said I would be rich if I lived in their country as many people can live on 1-2 US dollars a day. For the price of my Maisonette in Langley I could afford to buy an estate, they did their best to convince me to move to Nairobi, I politely declined 😊
Mike and I have been convinced to go out and eat in Carnivores tonight, almost everyone I have met so far has said - you must go there - so we will be going tonight! the team suggests goat - im not so
Today I saw two workers on scaffolding, fast asleep, these guys are not employees of the company I work for - thank goodness - here are pictures of them fast akip - crazy!
