Been without a computer for a few days. It started behaving oddly.

The butchers in a Kenyan town.

We did see several combined butchery and hotels and also the Nuclear Service Station!

My Kenyan friend over here bemoans the fact she can't find goat meat. No wonder she is in such awe of our super markets!

'Tom's Butchery' - sounds kinda sinister!! Excellent local 'colour', John.

Seen it all now what a fantastic picture, i take it this is on par with Waitrose Butchers and it's one of their better outlets , but i still wouldn't buy the sausages.Grin

Yes, I was also thinking what health inspectors here would say. Also, don't see the word butchery used much over here. In the US one like to gloss over reality a bit.

Very interesting to see, and I imagine visiting a place like this is quite an experience. Hope you stayed well. My aunt and cousin travelled to India one year and came back seriously ill.

As for computers, I've been fighting with a dodgy keyboard most of the morning - and was once again reminded of how dependent I've become on this "box".

Looks as if Dewhursts have branched out to Kenya.... an interesting insight into a different culture.

Well done John.
