Yesterday, the internet was down for longer than usual — all day, in fact.

As it turns out, a ship dropped anchor off of the Mombasa coast — directly onto undersea fiber optic cables that power the majority of East Africa’s internet connectivity.

Thankfully, everything seems to be back up and running here in Nairobi. But it is a reminder that I’m not in Kansas anymore — or any landlocked ground, for that matter.

P.S. Real post coming soon.
