S-39-CS "Spirit of Africa"_Over the Tana River _1932

The Sikorsky S-39 was an American light amphibious aircraft produced by Sikorsky Aircraft during the early 1930s. The S-39 was a smaller, single-engine version of the S-38.

Filmmakers Martin and Osa Johnson used a giraffe-patterned S-39 Spirit of Africa, with companion zebra-striped S-38 Osa's Ark, to explore Africa extensively, making safari movies and books

i would gladlygive my left ball for such an adventure across Africa, taking mbisha and writting about the experience
That would be an epic adventure, would sell my kidney without a second thought

Hapo nilisimama for 4 years on Fridays na Sunday. The buildings you see are Marsabit and Elgon house. The names were issued in 1964 previous they had 'colonialistic names' to quote Jommo

i remember that Sunday very well as nilikua works pale the old big Githurai roundabout selling my wares with a sony doble deck radio casette with detachable speakers, being a news buff who listens to news headlines every end of the hr sikuamini ile kitu niliskia, eti our beautiful princess ametuacha, FM stations were in their infancy and i had to tune to BBC world news on S/W, people around me wakashangaa nimezima mziki kwanini and yet i had customers nikawashow wanyamaze tuskize, the BBC confirmed the sad news and we all fell silent, imagine soko mzima iliomboleza, had an import on tow na alikua na rafiki yake and they started crying, Haiya, kumbe Diana was well loved in Kenya too.
saa hio hio nikaachia kijanaa job kakimbia home pale nilikua nimetap DSThieves kutoka kwa neighbor, DSTV those days ilikua yaja na aerial "300" meters long and if you tuned your tv ulikua wapa hizo channel, for the rest of the afternoon i was locked on to the news station tukigojea tuambiwe how our Princess had met her death.
Then siku ya mazisi Elton John akaachilia hii ngoma dedicated to Diana
it was a very emotional service.
Rest in peace Princess
@Meria Mata I have waited for so long thinking you will see the serious breach of protocol that occured in this post. Sadly you did not
I would rather sound petty but ensure that KTalk archives the right information.

THE LADY WAS PRINCESS DIANA!!!! Not Prices Diana...what an abomination. I have taken the liberty of editing your post that I am replying to.
Thank you.
PS. There is yet another pothole that awaits you. Will check whether you will have used and abused it.

PSS. @gashwin please remind this former ES about the importance of proof reading and editing....
