Kisumu Uncovered

If you must - and you must - travel to Kisumu from Nairobi, try something different. The Kericho route is beautiful, what with the rolling hills covered in green tea plantations that look like a rich man’s lawn. But that is what everyone uses. Perhaps try branching off instead at Londiani. Pause for a minute to rest your feet from the pedals and let the market women swarm your car with cobs of maize. All you have to do is choose one of them, ask them how their day is, buy a cob, accept praises of how handsome you look in that car (even if it is hired) and then proceed towards Muhoroni.

This is Stan

51Forget Givenchy’s zebra mules or YSL’s feathery sandals, it’s the humble white trainer that fashion folk repeatedly turn to: the Adidas Stan Smith to be exact. Today Stan Smiths are available in a host of colours and materials, for men, women and children. Almost every pair produced bears the name and face of the actual Mr Stan Smith, the world’s most unassuming style icon, marking the longest and one of the most lucrative relationships in sports-shoe history.

The first time I tried poke (pronounced ‘POHkeh’) was at Baker Street Station in Guelph. I was on one of my wheat-free kicks – minus liquid wheat, which I determined fine – and decided to give it a go. And what a go it was. The bowl of raw, marinated salmon tossed over warm rice and topped with edamame, sliced avocado, sesame seeds and other delectable ingredients, and finished with a beautifully-executed sesame dressing, was like heaven in my mouth. Fresh, crunchy, pretty, delectable. Sort of like deconstructed sushi – but maybe even better? – Baker’s poke bowl (which I usually paired with a Bellwoods ‘Jutsu’ APA or Elora ‘Lady Friend’ IPA) quickly became my go-to for lunch.

Do You See What I See?

Carlos Cruz-Diez is often associated with the kinetic-art movement, owing to the sense of motion in his installations and intriguing Physichromies. Yet this classification belies the 94-year-old artist’s singular objective: to transform our experience of colour into a participative event that is dependent on changing light. Born in Venezuela and now living in Paris, he expresses this philosophy – which has underscored his work since the 1960s – through Chromosaturation, a series of spatial installations bathed in colour. The artist’s children established the Cruz-Diez Art Foundation (hosted by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston) and the city of Caracas in Venezuela named a museum after him: Museo de la Estampa y del Diseño Carlos Cruz-Diez.

I set out with three of my friends in a 1970 VW bus named Wendy on a summer road trip that spanned the United States through some of the country’s coolest national parks. We were in it to see if German engineering was everything it’s chalked up to be—we also feel the need to test our friendship annually with a crazy summer trip and thought, “Why not sit in a bus together for hours on end?” Turns out that with a little TLC, four fed-up dudes and one fed-up bus can make it across the country in a few pieces.

Depending on your perspective, horses can be awe-inspiringly majestic or intimidatingly powerful and unpredictable; so large are they in stature and possessing of a quiet power that seems all the more mysterious to human understanding. And while many people overlook horses as humble beasts to be tamed and ridden, it is their strong will and inner strength that make them such a powerful catalyst for overcoming fears we have hidden inside, for facing struggles that seem too great to overcome. Every touch, every whisper, and every movement can be a reflection of a battle raging within. And sometimes it takes a horse to see—and to heal—what nothing and no one else can.

Dismantling Dance Music's Boys Club

As more doors unlock for women and marginalised groups in electronic music, it’s important to keep them wedged open. After all, what good is success if you can’t offer others a leg-up on your way to the top? For The Black Madonna, a fervent advocate for inclusivity in the scene, this strategy is essential in levelling the playing field. “Mentorship is something I was always passionate about,” the DJ says. “I always had this theory that just like in any other field, if we were able to take a systematic approach to a systematic problem, that we would see changes, and we have.”
