When we were kids my dad would take my brother Kiboi and I with him when he went shopping. We loved it. For some reason the memory I have is of us going in the evenings. We would go to and buy this place to buy ham and my dad would make the butcher give us polony to taste. It was always either polony or honey glazed ham. As kids this would really really excite us. Sometimes he would then have it weighed then give us more slices and we would munch away feeling like the luckiest kids in Nairobi at the time.
