I like that all the black Africans you met were like, ‘Chill. Eat snacks. Hang out. Groove. Time is not money but appreciation of the gift of it.’ And then the one white South African you meet (or at least write about) is trying to walk across a tightrope above the Zambezi. I mean… Decolonisation means rest. Rest is resistance. Hang out.

My family had lots of connections to Mombasa. I’m glad it was a lovely moment in time and space for you. Shaista x
