    Remind me do you speak any, and have you ever been there??
    I lived in Kenya for 5 years. I can only speak Swahili and a few words in Kikuyu. And yourself, do you only visit?

    That's nice, i've been three times. And I married a Kenyan, in the Nairobi registry office, a year after the troubles of 2007. Do you remember that, it was a scary time!?!

    Ohh cool. Yeah I was there actually, luckily I lived in a place far away from the violence. Does your wife live in Kenya?

    She lives here with me and our kid in the UK. They only went back for a short holiday. I just have to try to avoid becoming a raging alcoholic, whilst they are away?!?

    Google translate? That doesn't make sense in French. I would have said 'il ne faut pas demander l'âge d'une femme' but even that looks a bit basic :dontknow:
