For those of you who a bit about Kenya the words “Happy Valley” do ring a bell. These words bring us back to the colonial days between two world wars. The heady days of colonialism where the rich and mighty had much to spend, where drugs and extra-marital relations and murder (?) were present. In many books about the colonial days the set of Happy Valley is mentioned.
Juliet Barnes, from Kenya, has dug into the past and the present of this valley. What happened to all the beautiful houses where these aristocrats lived in ? Are there still memories lingering on in the valley and among the members of the white tribe?
