Spent every minute of the day smoking. Could be found in Clive/Scott
wooden bicycle shed, down a pig hole widened out to make a den, with air holes to let out the
smoke. "10 Centies or Rooster" cigs which we bought from the Duka in the African Quarters of
Scots Laboratories at the end of the bottom hockey field.
Rhodes put on an African Safari for Bicycles. The route took us from Rhodes, past Junior Dinning
Room, past Clive/Scott Dining Room to the end of the bottom playing fields, back up, past sick
bay, past "Flakys" house, turned right up to Rhodes/Nick across to Grigg/Hawke, back to Rhodes
via the line of gum trees. Our Team Won - Bill Neish, Nicky Blunt and myself.
I think it was in 1956 that Donald Rundgren, Peter Purchase, Nicky Blunt and myself rode by bike
to Kikambala where Donald lived..... in 72 hrs - we had to wait about 7 hrs for the Mtwapa Ferry.
It was a hell of a journey bearing in mind the roads were dirt except for the Makinon Road and
Athi River bits.
I can't remember the chapel being there, but I do remember collecting for it to be built. Can
anyone remember when the Harris family dumped a load of Pineapples off at the School. We made a
fair bit of 'pombe' and stashed it under senior dorm floor boards.
Could go on for ever and ever ........ will send more later.
