tuliwalaza!

Tuliwalaza 23-16! yes i finally succumbed to a higher power and went to watch the rugby match between Kenya and morocco thanks to the persuasion of my nephew who is an ardent fan and player. Morocco, the announcer said is ranked 3rd in Africa after South Africa and Namibia. Kenya is ranked 6th. A decent placing if you ask me given we only hear of our other boys being ranked in the tens. contrary to my popular belief, the crowd at this joint was very decent, very enthusiastic and very funny. i loved them. the game was funny too and the ball was in motion less times than it was being fought for. the average weight of the morocans was 100Kg according to the announcer and that of kenyans was 90KG. needless to say, Kenyans did badly anytime there was a scram. but they were quite tactful and fast and the crowd played even a bigger role. i all it was an enjoyable encounter. maybe coz of the win or maybe coz of the company.

after the game is when i found out that the spectators of ruj are not your everyday folk. the car park was full with 'strong' cars and there was a temporary snarl up on the busy ngong road. i was reliably told that the players would go for diner then drink themselves silly. that explains why those players are pot bellied like that. am still wondering how such big guys manage to run that fast and with that much energy.

On the way back, the car completely refused to go past china center , it forced a turn into the center where amaica always hosts kenge kenge the orutu masters. at china center there is also martinis, a very choici pub with sweet lights and beautiful ambiance.
