Next week I will be back in Nairobi for the first time this year. I will be accompanied by Josh Blann who is a professional actor, professor of drama, playwright and director. Josh and his wife Kim (and my main man Beckett) are good friends of ours and we have all been trying to woo Josh to Africa for years as he is the only one of the four of us who has not yet been.
This past fall Idah Alisha Upton, a professional actress from Kenya, was here with her husband. They are also good friends of ours and we were hosting them while they were in the US. Idah got to meet and spend some time with Josh while sitting in on one of his acting classes. Then, Josh was invited to help produce a TED Talk event in Nairobi this summer and needed to get to Nairobi sooner than later.
