It’s rainy, grey and cold here in Wenlock this morning. But the weather people tell us this is only a temporary set-back and spring should resume tomorrow. In the meantime it seems a good excuse to return to the old Africa album for some equatorial warmth, although it has to be said East Africa can be extremely chilly too. (Not a lot of people know this). Anyway here’s a snap taken on an unchilly day in Nairobi’s National Park, city construction work and wildebeest in the background.
So: not so much a zebra crossing as a zebra pile-up.
Happy weekend one and all, however it comes.

Could do with a bit of rain up here Tish, had nothing for a month! Love the Zebras thought they were the latest additions to your village fauna. 😊
Now that would be an eye-opener – zebra on the Edge 🙂 The rain’s not adding up to much, which is a pity. Like you, we’ve had nothing for weeks. Weather gods shot all their rain bolts from Oct to Feb perhaps.
Zebra pile up! Love it 😍 Gets awfully chilly in Johannesburg too in winter, not called the Highveld for nothing.
So happy you liked my pile up, Jude. And yes, southern Africa can be v. draughty too. We went to Zimbabwe in July and it was very cold at night. And we often used have a log fire in in Nairobi – July to Sept.
Got their best stripes on!
Hot by day…cold by night…That what I have always heard any way. There is something magical about zebras.
Zebras are v. appealing, I agree.
I guess some things really are just black and white. 🙂 I just looked to see what a group of zebras is called and was told a dazzle or a zeal. Hippos meanwhile are a bloat, which is more than a bit ironic, don’t you think?
😂A dazzle of zebra and a bloat of hippos – those are new ones on me. Thank you, Janet
I had some friends sometime who had come from Lux in June-July and they couldn’t believe Nairobi, the city in the sun, could be so chilly
I remember knitting quite a lot of thick jumpers while I was in Nairobi – nice woolly wool from Meru if I remember rightly. Graham’s sweater is unravelling a bit, but mine are still intact. I was very glad of them back them, and over 20 years later, I still am.
I hope you are well, Mak. And not eating too much that you will need the structural adjustment to your domestic premises that you predicted 🙂
I am well and trying to keep it that way. At the moment I am able to still ride so I will pass through doors in the near future. It might change though if I can’t go out.
Good to hear you still go out and ride. Have you seen this – almost 100 yr old veteran raising funds for our NHS doing garden lengths with his walker. What a star! https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/11395689/tom-moore-just-giving-nhs/
I saw it and was quite impressed
Quite a sight!
If somewhat aged shot 🙂
And why does that matter….?
Well now you mention it – it doesn’t. I think I was having a little yen to go back with my digital camera! (3,000 shots later…)
I think zebras are my favorite animals in the wild. I find their unique striping and their habits fascinating.
Yes, the unique striping is v. intriguing.
I love this photo! I love that there can be buildings, and modern construction cranes in a setting with a bunch of zebra and wildebeest wandering by!
Thanks, Alison. Nairobi’s park is quite something, though I gather the once open migration corridor to the south is increasingly under threat by further human encroachment. It’s still an amazing resource.
A dazzling pile up – I love this #SquareTops
Thank you, Becky. A dazzling dazzle then.
There do seem to be more heads than legs! Love it – and all your photos.
Thank you 🙂
Hee, hee, hee … ‘zebra pile-up!’ 😀
🙂 🙂 🙂
The construction is a tad depressing, isn’t it?
It’s not very pretty, I agree, and a lot more of it since the photo. There’s talk in the Kenya press of KWS wanting to build an eco-lodge in the park. There’s some resistance it seems.
Resistance to greed is good… 😉✌️
