Culture & Pride
It is March! Can you believe it, three months into the year already. So far we’ve experienced some pretty exciting things. All of us here at the Peanut Gallery live in Nairobi, and the past month has been a sea of exciting events in the political arena. Life is finally getting back to normal around here and we’re grateful for that, but also we’re amazed by the people of Kenya and how enthusiastic they can be about their leaders. It’s been a privilege to watch the people’s hopes, and dear wishes for peaceful elections come true, and the excitement is catching when such a thing is achieved. The herculean effort from civilians, police and government leaders to enjoy life despite heightened pressure was remarkable and absolutely worthy of a Kenyan Spirit. Especially when you find business is just as it was two weeks ago if not better. We’re truly proud to be part of such a revolution.
In the spirit of travel and enjoying new places and culture, our blog showcase today focuses on a Graduate Student’s blog on his stay in Japan.
Keisetsunokou is a blog documenting Ben’s exploits and different experiences in cities in Japan. I love this blog because of the photographs and how uniquely amazing they all portray the different scenes and cities. From climbing mountains with stunning scenery at the top, to sleeping in capsule hotels, visiting busan and eating Kimchi, stunning buildings and showing a bit of life after the earthquake. Ben’s blog is an experience we should all read.
Here are a few photos that truly stood out for me:
About the blog in his own words, he goes Short and Sweet, the Content more than speaks for itself
This is the Blog of Ben, currently a graduate student of International Business and Development Studies at Sophia University (上智大学) in Tokyo. Posts in this blog are mostly random, reflecting upon student life, my experiences in Japan and the journey ahead.
I love reading this blog, and go back to it often coz I’m always finding a story or city I missed. That’s what makes a great travel blog, right? Great Content Ben.
This is March, like I said earlier. The end of this month we’re hoping to have made a few achievements like Sui’s finishing two of her books and making this blog reaching 100 posts. Here’s to hoping we get there. We have a new grab a button for a new project. Check out Lilansui’s Fiction Library for a new e-book you haven’t read.
