Things kids from the 90s are sorry they missed

Historical pictures from Kenya

As old people from the 90s, it also gives us a perverse amount of pleasure when the kids ask us what a VHS tape is and we start a nostalgic story with the words, “Back in my day…”

However, I recently found catalogues and portfolios of Kenya in the old days and I’m sorry I missed them. Amazing pictures from BM (Before Mari) that desperately make me wish I'd been alive to see that.
