UHURU GARDENS

by Anne Roshie


    Am seated in my apartment looking out as the snow falls gently on the ground. It's been a really nasty winter this season, the numbing wind chills, relentless snow storms arrrgghhh.... It's enough to make me throw my hands up and book a flight to Cancun. Since that aint about to happen, lets focus on more exciting news!!

Lupita Nyong'o won her first Academy Award for her role in 12 YEARS A SLAVE. She looked extremly gorgeous in her Nairobi Blue, custom made Prada gown. And her speech was beyond beautiful. Congratulations Lupita!!

 So on my final post from my trip to Kenya, I stopped by the Uhuru Gardens Memorial Park. It is the venue where my country's independence celebration took place over 50 years ago. The memorial park is very significant since it commemorizes the birth of Kenya as an independent country. Just looking at these pictures make me want to go back!!!

Notice the Nairobi Blue skies........
