A SONG OF KENYA... (12-3)

Today, thursday 3rd december 2020

03-12-2020 by Freddie del Curatolo

Today's singing of Kenya, or rather "iggo id ayneK led otnaC lI", belongs to the oddities of the equator, those that even scientists are not sure they can explain.
On the hill of Kyamwilu, near Machakos, if you park a car slightly downhill and do not apply the handbrake, you will find it fifty metres further uphill.
Since it happened to an English gentleman many years ago who tried to convince the already skeptical world of this "magic", those who know the area, know it and want to feel a strangeness, repeat the same operation. But that's not all, the inevitable autochthonous tourist guides, even in an arid and insignificant area like this, are ready to show you other prodigies: balloons that kick back from the descent, water that flows in the wrong direction, a record of 100 metres uphill that cannot be homologated and other prodigies that send Newton to sell apples and bananas.
And they have a beautiful local legend ready, the legend of Kituluni which tells of a woman who on that hill had married two men, breaking ancestral laws.
According to the local elders, the bride of Kituluni, buried on the hill, also broke the laws of physics.
Here the force of gravity was "mounted" backwards.
Try to believe, without asking too many questions.  
But above all, invite the Covid-19 to Kyamwilu with all its fans: virologists, researchers, opinion leaders, pharmaceutical vultures and singing company. Who knows if Kituluni will perform the miracle.
