  肯尼亚人的生活是采访形式的,微博(人在kenya)同步更新,先发几个热热身。

  story 1:
  如果有人提前告诉我24到30是人生中最困难的阶段,那我可能会早点脱离苦海。尤其作为肯尼亚人,现在是压力最大的时候,承担各种责任的同时需要找到自己的立足之地。我出生在一个非常普通的家庭,很用功去完成大学教育。如果我早知道两年学业下来,我将会失业,我会毫不犹豫退学并转到其他事情上,以减轻父母的重担。我常觉得疲惫,心累,与一个loser没什么区别。作为一个单亲妈妈我需要自救。需要承担赡养父母和培养小孩的责任,职业无望,账单支付,小孩抚养费,父母生活开支,。。。多少次曾想过从事性工作来支付各种开支。我知道这是最快来钱的办法,可是良知和尊严不允许我这样做。日复一日,我在这毫无希望地过一天算一天。快奔三的肯尼亚人很多都放纵、吸毒,变成瘾君子,最后导致抑郁。我也不例外,但是女儿是使我保持清醒不随波逐流的唯一动力。我需要一个更好的明天,我将为她做好准备,面对这些环境的挑战。24-30年龄段的人都有不可思议的故事。

  "If they told me earlier that the age between 24yrs -30yrs old is the toughest stage in one's life,I could have looked for an exit. Being a Kenyan in this phase is the most stressing moment,this phase meets many struggling to find their feet while being subjected to numerous responsibilities. Being born in a low class family,I have struggled all way to have a university education, if only I knew that two years down the lane I would remain jobless,I could have opted out and focus more on other things that will strain less my parents. Am worn out,tired,weary and more so I feel like a looser. I need to survive now that am a single mother to one. I need to provide for both my daughter and my parents. career going to drains,bills pilling,babies need ,parents needs etc., what can restrain my thoughts from looking for sex for payment? More so,that is the easy way,but again my consciousness and dignity cannot allow such a move. Am here living one day at a time with close to zero future hopes. Late 20s in this country is where many loose the step,they engage in drugs for sobriety end up being addicts and other fall into depression. Am no expectional,but my daughter is the only one thing that keeps me sane. I need a better Tomorrow for her and I will prepare her well to face these challenges. The 24-30yr old age bracket is more of untold story"--Anne

  Story 2:
  关于我的生活,我不得不提的是我的童年时光。我出生在肯尼亚西部,具体来说是基西县。我两岁时全家搬到蒙巴萨希望在这里找到更绿色的牧场。可以说在头几个月生活很美好,但坏事来的就是这么突然。我爸卖掉了我妈妈用她的储蓄来建造的房子,过了没多久把我们也抛弃了。
  他去往内罗毕半年,自己赚钱自己用,也没有联系我们。我不得不提到,在这一点上,我开始厌恶我的爸爸。但当他打我的妈妈,这已经是触碰到我能忍耐的底线了。但让我疑惑的是,当我爸过来乞求时,我的妈妈竟同意带他回家。
  我发现他有我们之前不知道的女人和孩子。必须说明的是,他从来没有为我的学费支付一分钱,我受教育全靠我妈苦苦支撑。他对我那弟弟的上学做了一些贡献,因为那是他最喜欢的儿子。现在我可以真的说,他已经破坏了我的婚姻生活,近期我完全没有结婚的可能。

  Well about my life so far I'll have to say it has to be my childhood days. I was born in the Western sides of Kenya, Kisii county to be specific. We moved to mombasa when I was two years old, my parents hoping to find greener pastures here. Life was smooth I can say for the first few months but then things changes suddenly. My dad abandoned us for quite some time after selling off a house that my mum had built using her savings.
  He went off to Nairobi for six months to spend the money all by himself without bothering about us. I have to mention that it was at this point that I began to resent my dad but what ultimately made me loath him was when he hit my mum, that was just the last straw for me. But to my disbelief my mum took him back when he came begging.
  I came to find out he had other women and kids that we didn't know about. I also must mention that he never paid a single penny for my school fees and I was educated by my struggling mum. He's contributed a bit to my small brother's schooling coz he is his favorite son. Right now I can truly say that he's ruined marriage life for me and I don't see myself getting married anytime soon---Tom

  从1998年开始,我就开始从事房地产工作。肯尼亚的经济状况每天都在改变,每天早晨醒来都精神饱满。作为三个孩子的父亲,我必须非常努力 以养育他们并提供他们一个美好的未来。但生活有时跟我们开玩笑,我们只有祈祷事情往好的方面发展。 从我入行以来,房地产工作已经改变了我很多。科技不是一个过时的东西,但我能在很短的时间内完成。

  I have worked in a Real estate company since 1998. The passion and the energy to wake up everyday to go work since the countries economy is changing day by day year by year to now 2017. Being a father of three children I have to work extremely hard to ensure they have a bright future in terms of raising them and giving them a happy future. It is unfortunate that life can at times be unfair and we only hope things get better. Working in a real estate has challenged me so much as to when I joined technology was not a thing of the past but now I can be able to work and deliver within a short span of time.

  当我20出头时,这是我的快乐,但某些事突然出现,那种感觉如何有人能体会到吗。我有一个男朋友,我们在一起很开心。我们经常约会,一起走遍了很多地方。我时不时给我发短信,打电话,过来看我,我喜欢这种相处方式。我想我很开心,直到他向我求婚。我害怕说“是”或“不是”,其实我很困惑。我不知道该告诉他什么,因为我觉得我做不到。

  When I turned twenty,it was my joy but something clicked,how do someone feel. I got a boy friend and we were happy. We used to go out,visit many places together. I liked the way he could text,call,visit me. I think I was happy until he asked me to marry him. I feared saying yes or no,infact I am confused. I don't know what to tell him because I don't think I can do it.--Rosared Njogu

  生在肯尼亚中部,我却渴望城市的生活。 当一个在城市工作的乡下人带一个手机回家,那感觉就像在20世纪80年代驾驶梅赛德斯。 所以我羡慕那种感觉。 长大后,我梦寐以求的去了城市。 我努力挣钱买了一个手机,虽然不是我最想要的,我想要的是iPhone,但我已经尽力了。我差不多赚够买iPhone的钱了,我要提升生活质量,就像末日一样过好每一天。

  Being born from Central Kenya, I yearned visiting and living in the city. When I could a villager from the city would come home,having a phone,it was like driving a Mercedes in the 1980's. I admired going to the city and owning a phone. Once I grew up,I went to town as I dreamed of. I worked hard and bought a phone,though that was not my dream phone. I struggled and saved so that I can buy an iPhone. Am almost buying it,I want to live life as if I will not live tomorrow.---Shiru

  当我想到一种叫做“生活”的东西时,我怀疑我知道它的真正含义。 我08年完成了八年级班(肯尼亚是8年小学,4年中学,再上大学)。我母亲说她凑不齐我上中学的学费。 我很压抑难过,哭了很久。 我决定去城里找工作谋生。 可是没有任何经验,哪个老板会招我了。我先是当了八个月管家,后面参加了美容美发培训。在我的培训期间,被老板炒鱿鱼了。 尽管我理发技术一般,不得不走街串巷去问人是否要理发。 我努力工作,直到现在我有自己的沙理发厅。这是我难忘的人生经历。

  When I think of something called "life" I wonder whether I know its meaning. I completed class eight in the year 2008. My mother said that she did not have money to take me to secondary school. I got stressed and cried for a long time. I decided to go to the city to look for a job. Without any experience, where would I get a job. I worked as a housekeeper help for eight months and I enrolled for a training in hairdressing. During my training I was sent away by my employer. I had to look for mobile job to plait people's hair even if I was not perfect. I worked hard until now I have my own salon. That was an experience to remember---Luciah

  在2014年完成中学教育后,我去了这个城市寻找所谓的“更绿色的牧场(更好的机会)”。当我到达内罗毕时,我找到了一份硬件安装工作。刚开始的几天工作很轻松,直到一个人告诉我老板我在站点无所事事。 老板听后对我很生气,这让我压力很大,要不是我求他我就失业了。从那以后,我经常额外做一些杂事来保住我的饭碗,尽管我本意是想提升我的教育水平。(应Sasha要求,照片模糊处理)

  After I completed my secondary school education in 2014,I went to the city to look for the so- called "greener pastures". When I arrived in Nairobi, I landed a hardware job. It was easy in the first days,until one man told my employer that I am not doing anything at the site. It was stressing because he was angry at me and I almost lost the job if it was not that I begged him. From that day I usually do even the odd jobs so that I won't lose the job,although i am working towards furthering my education.---Sasha

  虽然年长是福气,我常想念我年轻力盛的时光。那些年轻时经常做的事,现在却很难。 尤其是当你面对一个年轻漂亮的女士(感觉怪怪的)。 还会恨自己出生太早,因为你可以嫁给这位美丽的女士。我们还说,“老年人不仅仅是痒,而且把我带走”与贫困有关。

  Although old is gold,I usually miss being a young and energetic guy. Sometimes its even hard to do those things that you used to do when you were young. But worse is when you come across a young and beautiful lady. Sometimes you even regret being born earlier since you could marry the beautiful lady at the moment. We also say that "old age does not only Itch but it wears me out" relating it to poverty.---George
