NAIROBI NIGHTS

tigoni road One night after barbecuing with our family, my dad and I stay up at the terrace, watching the stars up in the dense black sky. He plays me his best 80’s tracks and we discuss Kate Bush while sharing the taxfree cognac I brought. She was well before her time, a true artist, mixing music in a way nobody had experienced. But it’s like that, the true talent get lost to an unknowing crowd. We are the same, him and me, being the quiet ones in the background, analysing and taking it all in, but other times bursting into flames, being the center of attention and making everybody laugh. He then tells me once again about his student years and all the mess him and his friends caused. The beauty of being 20 and dumb. It strikes me every time how many stories he has told me but that he still seem to possess a million more. They are all filled with wilderness and carelessness and happiness, just like my dad. The Nairobi night is hot and the open fireplace is cracking between us. My dad gets up to refill our glasses and brings me his biggest jumper that I drown in. It’s soft from having been washed and worn forever but still smell like safari dust. We continue planning our lives, conspiring against society and the rules. He tells me about his time in Orange County and the plans on a big roadtrip next year to visit all his Americans. Simon & Garfunkel sings out the Sound of Silence from the laptop speakers and my dad has to pause it and turn to me. I mean WOW, can you hear it. It’s just insane how great they are. We play the track again and this night is endless.   Linn

KENYA

westagePicture 049My family at Westgate, Nairobi 2010   I have trouble writing this post as I’m hurting and will still never come close to describing or feeling the pain caused to the people of Kenya. The past week Al Qaeda has carried out a terrorist attack on the mall Westgate in Nairobi where at least 69 people has been murdered and over 200 injured. The victims have been beheaded, raped and disfigured, children stabbed with knives. As the mall was then demolished, it collapsed and trapped up to 200 more people in the rubble so they expect the number of dead to increase with another 130-160. This is a country I love, it’s my second home as my family still live there, and Westgate is a place me and my family visit frequently. I am so grateful that they were lucky enough not to be there and that they are safe. I am also horrified that it happened to these absolutely innocent people. NOBODY should have to experience anything like this. My heart goes out to the victims and their families.   Having said that, I can’t stop thinking about the fact that when it’s wealthy, white people dying, the whole world gets involved, but when street children and poor Africans get abused, molested and killed every single day in the same area, it’s accepted as a part of this system.   Linn

CANROBERT STREET / ATT FLYTTA IHOP

Mr DP i nya rummet Nu har det hänt. Det här mina vänner, är min nya roomie! Japp, det är sant, jag som aldrig skulle ha pojkvän har nu alltså t.o.m. flyttat ihop med en. Och det är helt sjukt i huvudet men jag har aldrig haft roligare någonsin. WindowsGarderober Ett rum med två gigantiska fönster, uråldriga trägolv som knarrar, tre dubbeldörrade garderober och ett eget badrum. Den ligger i ett town house med en liten trädgård, en takterass, en diskmaskin(!), en öppen spis, ett tomt loft och tre flatmates som bjöd oss på trerätters hemlagad och litervis med vin för att fira att just vi flyttat in. Gatan är full med bara gamla engelska tegelbyggnader inklämt mellan Bethnal Green och Columbia Flower Market och Broadway Market. tegelTerrass och pizza Igårkväll var vår första riktiga dag i lägenheten efter att ha flyttat in i söndags då vi spenderade dagen med att packa upp allt och lyssna igenom alla vinyler vi äger. Efter jobbet igår gick vi alltså till den italienska restaurangen på Broadway Market för att köpa pizzor som vi åt på vår terrass! Det var fan så bra det kan bli ändå, det här oväntade livet och jag är mer än euforiskt jävla glad, för att han vill bo med mig och jag med honom.     Linn English: This sunday me and my boyfriend Daniel were insane enough to move in together in a crazy good flat between Broadway Market and Bethnal Green. Our room has these massive windows, an en-suite and three insane double doored wardrobes. It’s within a town house with a roof terrace, a garden, a dishwasher, creaky wooden floors, a loft and three wicked flatmates who cooked a massive meal for us before they got us drunk on the Sunday. Last night me and Daniel celebrated with pizza on our terrace. It’s crazy, that I always said I never wanted a boyfriend, and now I’m actually moving in with him, but oh dear fucking hell I’m having lots of fun.

BY DANIEL

LWDPJag avslutar den här oändliga Q&A med en himla populär fråga: Daniel, how would you describe Linn? I always find it difficult to describe people. You know exactly what they’re like (especially when that person is someone you spend almost every day with) but it’s only when you’re asked the question that you have to properly think about it and put it into words. So, here’s my first real attempt at describing my girlfriend, Linn. I don’t know if everyone that knows her will agree with what I write next but it’s definitely the image that I have in my head and I wouldn’t change it for anything.   When I started to spend time with Linn one of the first things I noticed is that she genuinely gets to know people without judging them at all. She seems completely open to meeting different kinds of people. She doesn’t care about what you look like, how you dress or where you’re from. That might sound weird but I think that when most of us meet people for the first time we’ve already developed an idea of who they are based on superficial things. We don’t really give people a chance. Linn, on the other hand, doesn’t seem to think about that at all. She just sees every encounter as an opportunity to discover something or someone new. Maybe that’s why she’s one of the most approachable people I’ve ever met. I don’t know how many times I’ve been out with her and witnessed complete strangers walk up to her and start a conversation. People just seem to like her as soon as they meet her. They want to instantly become friends and hang out the next day. She doesn’t always feel the same way but if she does get along with that person she’ll go with it.   That’s another thing that’s great about Linn, her spontaneity. She loves unexpected adventures and when she feels like going on one you can’t stop her. Everyone’s obviously invited to join her but if you’re not she won’t change her mind. She does what she wants when she wants. This has led to a few arguments between us but I think that most of us (including me) could learn to spend a bit more time doing things for ourselves without caring about what others want or think.   Linn’s fiercely independent. She doesn’t care about social norms or how things should be done. For example, the concept of relationship celebrations (i.e. Valentine’s day, one year anniversaries etc…) seem a bit silly to her. She wants to celebrate them (well, I think so) and enjoys it but it doesn’t matter if you do it on the exact day or not. Celebrating your one year anniversary a month late or early wouldn’t matter to her. It doesn’t have to be an extravagant celebration either. The only thing that’s important to her is to be with the person you’re meant to be celebrating with. Everything else is irrelevant. Linn is one of the very few people I know, if not the only person I know, for which the overused saying “It’s the thought that counts” actually seems to be true. She’ll never get caught up in the small and mostly unimportant details. This is probably why she is almost always having fun. She doesn’t let stuff get to her and finds happiness in the simplest things (i.e. going out for breakfast, balloons, rain, puppies, drinking on rooftops etc…) and this makes everyone around her a lot happier too.   Anyway, I could add to this mini-rant and talk about how incredibly intelligent Linn is and how she questions everything and will always express her opinion but I’m sure you already know that from reading her blog. These are the main things that stand out to me and make being her boyfriend feel special so I’ll just stop here.   Daniel
