Hello to you wherever and whenever you are as you find me here. How are you? Hopefully your 2018 is off to a positive start. My prayers go out to all those experiencing unusually cold weather. I hope the homeless are finding shelter. I’m worried about people and animals with conditions like this. My neighbor had his dogs out all day yesterday and I had to tell him to get the dogs inside because they were coming over to our place! We are actually experiencing winter here for the first time in several years and no one is used to it!
Last night there were lots of dreams; I will share this one. It had to do with going to a planet called Nayrobi (spelling in the dream), the God of my understanding and something about “dialing things back a notch.” It was like I was floating over the earth in a ship and there was a conversation going on from the ship to the Earth about going to the planet Nayrobi for some sort of therapy. I eventually agreed to go. I guess all the stuff I’ve been watching lately in my waking world about UFO’s, aliens etc. unlocked this dream lol!
I knew I had heard of an actual place on Earth with this name and I was right. Nairobi of Kenya in East Africa looks like a place that would be very therapeutic to visit!
Welcome to Nairobi
East Africa’s most cosmopolitan city, Nairobi is Kenya’s beating heart, an exciting, maddening concrete jungle that jarringly counterpoints the untrammelled natural beauty to be found elsewhere in the country.
Nairobi (/naɪˈroʊbi/; locally [naɪˈroːbi]) is the capital and largest city of Kenya. The name comes from the Maasai phrase Enkare Nairobi, which translates to “cool water”, a reference to the Nairobi River which flows through the city. The city proper has a population of 3,138,369, while the metropolitan area has a population of 6,547,547. The city is popularly referred to as the Green City in the Sun.
Nairobi was founded in 1899 by the colonial authorities in British East Africa, as a rail depot on the Uganda Railway. The town quickly grew to replace Machakos as the capital of Kenya in 1907. After independence in 1963, Nairobi became the capital of the Republic of Kenya. During Kenya’s colonial period, the city became a centre for the colony’s coffee, tea and sisal industry. The city lies on the River Athi in the southern part of the country, and has an elevation of 1,795 metres (5,889 ft) above sea level.
With a population of 3.36 million in 2011, Nairobi is the second-largest city by population in the African Great Lakes region after Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. According to the 2009 census, in the administrative area of Nairobi, 3,138,295 inhabitants lived within 696 km2 (269 sq mi). Nairobi is the 10th-largest city in Africa, including the population of its suburbs.
Home to thousands of Kenyan businesses and over 100 major international companies and organisations, including the United Nations Environment Programme (UN Environment) and the United Nations Office at Nairobi (UNON), Nairobi is an established hub for business and culture. The Nairobi Securities Exchange (NSE) is one of the largest in Africa and the second-oldest exchange on the continent. It is Africa’s fourth-largest exchange in terms of trading volume, capable of making 10 million trades a day.
I had to share this because it made me chuckle this morning. I was looking at search terms people used on my page and saw this: why donald trump is willy wonka. When I did a couple of searches on Google and Bing, some hits actually came up for people having made comparisons between President Trump and Willy Wonka!
