The world of Binti Mswahili.

Part rambling, part storytelling.

But mostly, just giving a voice to the tribe in my head.

    I really admire your blog. Your writing is terrific..the poems, thoughts everything is just wow! It sounds so natural…so freely flowing! I just love it. But I searched all over the blog and cant see how to get in touch with you for say, whether you can host a guest poet/writer or such. Keep it up!

    Hello. I’m a frequent reader of your blog. I was wondering whether it would be possible to get my blog on your blog roll?

    Here’s my blog http://www.ghafla.co.ke/news.

    I like your blog. Very real thoughts and feelings. I am a man but I read a lot of women stuff because I have a 6 year old daughter who still dreams of getting married to me when she becomes an adult. I want to be able to tell her about the real world before she gets there.
