katika Kenya kama post-doc.
Funeral wakes here are held from 10PM to 4 or 5 in the morning, with
speakers blasting crappy world-beat amusement park ride music at
ridiculous levels right in your neighborhood for up to two weeks at a
time. Apparently they attract drunks walking around at night who then
play little betting games with the DJ to raise money for the family.
Or so I've heard. After two nights of sleepless torture (earplugs were
insufficient), I finally beat them last night by putting 6 hours of
white noise on my iPod.
