I had the chance to experience SGR on day zero with the president, but the plans were quite hasty and to be honest felt like it would be a hectic event for a small wig like me. One needed state house approval to be on the train back, and that could only be confirmed once one reached Mombasa, not before, ideally one needn't have left Nairobi before confirming. So I passed.
But I still intend to travel aboard that train. At least several times. Who has made the trip, and what was your experience?
