What you need to know:

  • Lunch was always githeri (a mixture of beans and maize) from Monday to Sunday.
  • I must admit that I loved it because in spite of the weevils that often floated in the soup, it was the tastiest dish we got.

I did not have the fortune of going to one of those boarding schools where they serve students sausages and bacon for breakfast, or those that have snack and beverage–vending machines outside classrooms.
