Lamu Island

After the recent devaluation, it is becoming increasingly difficult to get outsized value from the SAS Eurobonus program. One remaining sweet spot though is North and Central Africa which is still available for 105 000 points roundtrip in C, for instance with Swiss. This in turn had me revisiting the Gypset book in which it is suggested that “Lamu is the forwarding address for a motley mix of escapists and wanderers”. Sounds strangely irresistible, no?

Since Eddie came down with chicken pox on Wednesday, my mother was kind enough to take the train up here to help out. Inspired by the culinary eclecticism of the Swahili Coast, I decided to make some tandoori-spiced quorn with yellow rice, roasted coconut flakes and mango chutney for dinner, of course served with a glass of chilled chardonnay from Western Australia.
