Unlocking Mombasa

I'm not sure that I did, was less sure yesterday, but I definitely like it. It's rough around the edges, shabby and rundown, gritty and battered and worn. There are heritage buildings you can't tear down but that no one has the money to restore. There are unmapped laneways and tucked away behind those are semi-private paths that connect residential buildings that may or may not close down at night.

It's like a low rent, unselfconscious  version of Stonetown. 

I didn't quite crack it, but I'm pretty sure that I could. And I'd like to.
