Buy African!

Back in Copenhagen, unpacking 4 weeks in Kenya and Tanzania. I've got - fresh from the shamba - vanilla, cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon from Unguja in Zanzibar;

Books by Kenyan writers;

a lampshade made by local craftman from Mbeya in southern Tanzania, bought on the street in Arusha;

Kanga and #vitenge;

Coffee from Kenya;
