On your expedition you will for some time at least be a based in Thika,its a lovely township with a colonial feel with lots to see and do all off the beaten track. These selection images were taken from just a days outing exploring the town and chatting with its residents. During my day I stumbled across a vintage bicycle rigged for sharpening knives, a vintage VW beetle complete with chromed badge and a place you can get a tailored suit designed and made for fifty quid or there about.
