Kenyan's have a fun way of celebrating Birthdays.
At your request, they will pre-make a cake which will be delivered at your table at the end of the meal.
The birthday affair consists of all employees lining up single file, going from table to table, showing your name to the other guests, each in turn, gradually joining in on the festivities and singing the Kenyan version of happy birthday:
"Jambo Jambo - Hakuna Matata...Jambo Jambo - Hakuna Matata"
Cooks, waiters, restaurant managers, etc. all join in dancing around the dining room, beating on pots, pans, glasses and anything else that will make noise before finally arriving at your table with a cake complete with sparkler!
Great fun and makes for some wonderful picture oppourtunities. The party culminates in the english version of "Happy Birthday" with everyone in the restaurant joining in.
The guys wanted to get me a GOAT for my
birthday. They wanted me to help them with it.
Have a reel BUSH-DINNER!" It never happened. NAKURU they said not a good place to do that. So, they went to town and get
some good beef! MY BIRTHDAY DINNER!
AND THE OPEN FIRE!!
PS, I'M GLAD THEY NEVER GOT THE GOAT!
Favorite Dish: ANYTHING ON THE FIRE!
