Jazzkaar 3: Cro-Magnon

Finally a concert at RockCafe, meaning finally a chance to dance and party. I had heard so many good things about those guys but i really didn't want to get my hopes up, you know, to not be disappointed. But i truly worried for no reason. These guys ROCKED MY SOCKS OFF!!! I loved it from the very beginning and when the concert was over it felt like it'd been 15 minutes, so of course we had to go to the afterparty at Krahl where the guys were supposed to go as well. Yeah, an escellent party night it was.

Jazzkaar 2: Tok Tok Tok

My second jazzkaar concert this year was smooth and mellow like cream liquor. Tok Tok Tok was as soulful as can be, in every sense of the word. Morten gave his all on sax and got tangled in his own sentences when telling stories inbetween the songs. I don't know what he was on, but i wanna have it:) And Tokunbo's sexy voice sent my mind drifting far far away. They were good to listen to and nice to look at. I applaud!

Jazzkaar 1: Calle Real

Calle Real
Originally uploaded by Festival JAZZKAAR
This year's Jazzkaar started with a bang! Calle real - a true Cuban salsa band from....wait for it...Stockholm, Sweden. Imagine that! Goodlooking Swedish guys playing hot-hot-hot cuban salsa and singing in spanish. If this isn't a perfect mixture for me, tell me what is. I am slightly drawn to the Swedes with their adorable accent anyway and if instead of calm scandinavian nature you see such fire on stage... you can be sure to find me in front row, shakin what my mama gave me.
Altogether, they were everything i expected from them and my expectations were high. Definitely envoke my inner salsera . Have to take up dancing again, it's been too long without it.

Another day, another Moet party

I think it's time to get out of Africa and back into real life because we all know i'm going back there anyway:) It's time to post other stuff than videos of safari et al.

There was a party yesterday. It's really easy to get used to the lifestyle when you go to a bar, the table's laid out for you with food and drinks and all you have to do is drink Moet all night, have fun and be charming. So i did all that, except for the charming part, i mean i cannot be a judge of that but i hope i still managed to keep up the charmometer. After all, Marquis de Pompadour has said that champagne makes every man witty and every woman beautiful, or sth in the line with that.
However, i am not entirely sure if walking home in my stockings was the night's brightest idea. But since my toe was almost falling off and i couldnt take the heels anymore that was the only option. The stockings are still intact, no holes or nothing, in case you were wondering.
And once again, there were some butterflies. They're getting part of my usual crowd these days. Or maybe i'm just confusing my constant excited state for butterflies:)

Kenya - around Nairobi and Safari

I've totally forgotten to publish this one. The whole safari experienece actually took place before the Lamu life, just so you know.
