Laban and I met four years ago on November 13, 2010. I had just returned to Nairobi from a two-week work trip to Rwanda and West Africa and was ready to be back in Kenya. I met up with my good friends Elise, Sarah, Moses, and Mark and we decided to go out on the town for some dancing! Laban and his cousins, Victoria and Faiz had a somewhat similar plan and the two groups found each other on the dance floor of Black Diamond. Needless to say, Laban and I were impressed by each other’s moves and the rest is history! We went out on our first date the following weekend and talked philosophy, religion, and politics over some kuku wet fry and ugali at a popular restaurant called The Garden (sadly now closed).
Maybe we’ll relive our first dates this weekend! 🙂
