    Now… here the explanations…

    The Swahili sentence means: “When we have Manuela (or e.g. Oliech, a famous kenyan player), nobody can beat us!” Now you can decide whether this is drinkable 😉

    The Schweine/Rindergeschnetzeltes in the end was Paprikahühnchen (due to the indian who joined…). Delicious… The first time I ate real soft chicken breast here. So now that I know you can actually get it in shops I might cook even more often…

    Apple was not included in the fruit salad, as the budget didn´t allow that. 1 Pineapple costs the same as 2 mini apples, bye the way. So Apples are an exclusive good here. This one was special for Matthias 😉

    About the game

    The atmosphere in the stadium was great, in the bus it was even better (60 drunk kenyans on their way to a national match. Then Claudia and me entered the bus… Imagine the cheering ;)).

    There was exactly one entrance to the stadium. Masses of people were climbing over the fence, just to be chased back by police horses. We had to show our tickets twice, our bags were not checked. Inside the stadiom we could sit whereever we wanted, no matter which block or how much we paid (2 Euro bye the way). Interesting 🙂

    During the match I was asked whether I am Namibian. Their coach and two of the players were white so the question was legitimate. But obviously I was cheering for Kenya. We went with a big group AIESECers.

    As soon as a foul was committed the audience started throwing (empty plastic) bottles on the field. I was happy to sit on the upper terrace, the people on the lower terrace were hit by the bottles…

    Match was great, better than I expected. I have the impression that football fans all over the globe are similar. Football unites, you cheer together no matter what origin, spotting a policemen is a reason for shouting even louder, singing is possible even when you are hoarse, alcohol helps. And women don´t know the names of the players 😉

    Ah, of course you want to hear the result: Of course we won. 1:0, it was a penalty shot.

    You see: the better places are everywhere in the upper regions. That’s life!
