Peter Kioi Karanja

House: Rhodes
Year: 1965-1969

My school life is still very fresh in my mind as it was the best part of my life, maybe because I only went to classes, ate good food, played games, and slept without thinking about day to day responsibilities. My main worry while in school was not coming across "Tuff Atkinson" as he was a master of "six of the best". He was a master in caning and I was a regular customer of his. I miss his caning room!!

I left the Prince of Wales School in 1969 and was employed by BOAC as a marketing trainee and specialized in the Japanese market after working in Tokyo for one year, and before my resigning from British Airways in 1980 I was the Sales Manager.

I started my current travel agent under the name of Falcon Travel which is located in International House, Nairobi. I also run an air charter company which operates within Kenya under the name of Ultra-machines and is also in the same building. I am also in partnership with a Japanese person in another company that specializes in making TV film documentaries for the Japanese stations in Japan.

I am married with three children, and reside in Nairobi (Lavington).
