In Summary
  • It's very annoying, by the way, to leave the house with a polo neck, an umbrella and a sundress below.
  • And boots in the back just in case it rains.
  • As I said, there are a number of options, but this particular night, we opted to go for the easiest one – Java.

Have you ever gone to the club one night, innocently leaving your house with a promise to return at a sensible hour of the day, and found yourself still awake and dancing when the sun is rising?

This has happened to me twice this month. I know, I was appalled too.

My excuse at the moment is that it is something in the December air – I swear, I'm usually a lot more responsible as an adult. Mostly.

Anyway, aside from my slight debauched deviations, the best thing to do if you're still awake at sunrise after a night out is, of course, to go have breakfast. But the question is, where?

A NUMBER OF OPTIONS

Depending on where you're watching the sunrise, there are a number of options outside of Sonford in town (I love me some Sonfordsafter the club. There's almost nothing like a lot of grease after a little drinking.).

Sunrise in Nairobi has become a bit of a rumour lately, because of global warming and various other factors; the weather can't seem to decide whether it wants to engage in proper December heat or not.

And so, we're subjected to cloudy mornings with nary a sunrise and an intermediate undecided day to follow therein.

VERY ANNOYING

It's very annoying, by the way, to leave the house with a polo neck, an umbrella and a sundress below.

And boots in the back just in case it rains.

As I said, there are a number of options, but this particular night, we opted to go for the easiest one – Java.

Most Javas open at around 6:30 am, and considering that the light checks in a little bit earlier than that, it felt like the logical choice.

But I did want to watch the day open with something a bit more scenic, so we chose to go have breakfast at the Java at Wilson Airport.
