Africa expat life on TV

From Africa Expat Wives Club, 2 days ago, Read 0 times. Similar articles

Over the years, via this comparatively long running blog (yikes, I started this in 2006!!), I have had approaches by TV and film company researchers asking various questions about expat life, apparently exploring the idea that a ?fly on the wall' documentary, fiction series or reality TV that might make great viewing for the folks back home. Do I know anyone who has recently moved here from the UK who might be willing to be filmed 24/7 for TV' (answer: No - are you joking').It's not hard to... Read more

Young Expat Life in Nairobi

From Africa Expat Wives Club, 2 weeks ago, Read 0 times. Similar articles

I've just met some of those expat twenty-somethings that I was telling you about recently. The ones who are flocking to Kenya to stimulate social enterprise. In fact I even met a young expat who was working for an investor in social entrepreneurship. The investment company she works for finds sustainable, innovative companies to sink money in to and then they hope to see not only a cash return but social good come out of it. I've learned via Google that this is called Socially Responsible... Read more

Life for an Africa Expat Wife, or 'Cappuccino Girl'

From Africa Expat Wives Club, 4 weeks ago, Read 0 times. Similar articles

I was interviewed over the phone some years ago by Radio Westcountry - or something along those lines.  As I stood there, shut into the smallest room in the house (this is literally a cupboard and was in the days when land-telephone lines worked) on a hot day with the door shut - obviously in Kenya - slightly concerned that the phone line would inexplicably cut off, or that my kids would burst in through the door and demand attention or else start screaming right outside the door - and...

From Africa Expat Wives Club, 1 month ago, Read 0 times. Similar articles

I get cross on the phone, frustrated and I don't like how my voice sounds.  Is this happening more and more' I sincerely hope not.So, yesterday I bought a set top box for the lady who works in our house.  Kenya has now (finally, after long threats and court cases) moved to a digital system - so old analogue TVs no longer work.  Bad news for hospital waiting rooms - not such big news for us because we have a big shiny TV that is already digital but annoying for Gladys as...

Kenya - Economic Update

So, Nairobi has the highest spending growth rate in the entertainment sector in Africa (according to a new survey released by Price Waterhouse Coopers on Wednesday, covering 30 African cities).  Good news for all you city bars and restaurants.  Kenya's new middle class is ready for a lot more nights out, apparently playing catch up with their counterparts in the rest of the world.Nairobi as Entertainment Capital  More good news, Kenya ranks top destination for...

Dance Fitness Nairobi (even for the middle aged!)

From Africa Expat Wives Club, 1 month ago, Read 0 times. Similar articles

I have to admit, forget midlife crises dictating that we start running marathons in our forties. No thanks. Mine is currently 'Songa Fitness' - which is a bit like Zumba with lots of attitude. Yes, I am definitely in my forties and I guess it's pretty sad to derive so much pleasure from these beat bopping (I think that I just made that cringe-worthy term up didn't I' Oh dear) routines - but my goodness, the workout time flies!

Loneliness in Expat Life - Sundays Suck

From Africa Expat Wives Club, 1 month ago, Read 1 times. Similar articles

Can expat life be lonely'Having been an expat in East Africa for 16 years now (gasp!), I have come to accept that loneliness comes with the territory. It was only when speaking to some younger, newbie British expats last week (I was honoured to meet them and kept on referring to myself as 'so old' by way of an apology...) that I realised that the situation hasn't changed. It's still lonely sometimes.Sundays are the real bone of contention.  Sundays can drag and if your other half is... Read more
