Not all our readers have noticed, but as a fun side dish to our daily service of news, information and advice from Kenya, we have been keeping you company for the past month and a half, every week, telling you in the form of music and irony, a little piece of life as Italian tourists in Kenya that we would like as soon as possible many of you to return to do in Malindi and Watamu, in the savannah and in the other beautiful locations of this country.
Maybe without making the same mistakes, maintaining the excessive naivety or the presumption of having understood everything that is at the base of the stories we like to tell, almost like moral tales where laughing and smiling is always the most important thing.
Our readership varies from 2000 to 4000 a day, the six songs we have proposed to you so far have totalled half of the views.
We don't earn anything from your clicks, we have set up (spending days in the studio preparing the bases, arranging and singing the songs, as well as writing and polishing the lyrics) a "festival" for the sole purpose of having fun and entertaining you, trying to alleviate a little of the sorrow of many of you who are not yet able to take the plane and fly to Africa.
But there is something you can do that costs you nothing: go to Youtube, look for our channels Malindikenya.net (you can also access from here, if you have youtube on your mobile phone or computer) and Tele Esule (this is the link to access them directly) and subscribe to the channel by clicking on the SUBSCRIBE button. The registration is obviously free and does not imply anything, but by doing so, you will help us to reach 1000 subscribers as soon as possible, which will allow us to "monetize" with youtube channels as well as through our portal.
To thank you for this, and to make the "festival" even more attractive, we have asked the Italian activities of Malindi and Watamu to raffle some prizes for those who will come to Kenya by the end of the year, especially if Italy, as we hope, will officially reopen to tourism.
But we have also decided that there will be prizes for those who will stay in Italy, Christmas gifts from Malindikenya.net and other sponsors.
Here is a summary of the prizes offered by the Italian activities!
