My experiences
As a turban wielding Sikh I have lots of fun on a daily basis... but two experiences stick out in my mind:

1. About a year ago, I was on the tube, and LU had obviously been taking lessons on sardine packing from John West. A lady brushed her elbow on my turban, and I could see the look of horror in her eyes as she began apologizing profusely. She wasn't amused when I jokingly asked her if he was trying to "feel me up".

2. About 6 months ago a 3 year old with his mom on a train pointed to me and went "what's that man wearing?" Cue much embarrassment and shouting at the kid from the mom. WTF??

Dear Mr Bigot
Yes, I might look different from you, but don't patronise me by asking me if I speak English, especially when I just asked you a question in English.

Don't look confused when I take it up a notch and phrase my answers in words that have more than two syllables. Furthermore, don't scowl when I school you in your spelling.

Don't get offended when I ask you if your native language is English, especially when your grammar is atrocious. Do not give me a lecture on WWII history, and do not get belligerent when I point out you're factually inaccurate.

Dr Mr Bigot, I recommend you go outside your glass house once in a while. You will notice the world has moved on. You might even benefit from it.

I find it hard to sleep
Without having either the TV or radio playing in the background. It's horrible, silence actually keeps me wide awake

Dear Paternal Grandmother
You are a WITCH! Just because you had your hands on the purse strings did not give you the right to control everyone for your personal pleasure and benefit.

I am fully aware that your constant fighting and bitching and berating my father, your son, led him to an early grave. Which mother finds an opportunity to wind up her son just because she can?

I saw what you did to my mother. Jealous of her position as my fathers wife, you intimidated and abused her. You used her like a slave and nothing she could do was ever good enough for you and your equally vile daughter.

You emasculated your younger son, and you tried to control both me and my brother. You deserve to rot in the core of hell.

Now you are ageing, have lost both your husband and your son, and there is nobody who wants to give you the time of day. Have you ever thought you might have had a part in this?

What goes around comes around.

With no love,

Zero Coke

Nairobi
What used to be quite a nice, clean, green city has turned into quite the turd world. Open sewers, cracked pavements, crime, potholes, lack of street lighting, garish large billboards advertising everything from tampons to toothpaste.

While the city collects massive amounts of revenue in the equivalent of council tax there is no garbage collection no road markings and spotty traffic lights. Electricity and water are both rationed.

Has friendly people though. And good beer.
