    I haven't been in Eagle Nest for very long time, but I met ex-waitress from there. She told me that management has changed there, new owner. So maybe there will be changes, location is good at least.

    Volume in Shanzu continue being very favourite place, it is full every Friday and Saturday, of other days I don't know. Most favourite place in the region now.

    For me problem in Volume is volume, they play music too loud, sound is breaking, I get headache there even without drinking, ears ringing.

    Most of the girls there are so called common girls. Lot of big matakos. I see many casourina girls also there also, later they come to Casourina, not always.

    I like to go there, buy a beer, maximum two, and then leave to Casourina. Motobike drivers are asking all the time higher prizes, now it is already 200 hundred to go to Casourina, but they take 150 after little talking. Taxi drivers ask 500 for this short trip.

    Safai Inn has lot of people on Tuesdays and fridays. I visited there one Tuesday, it was kind of OK, live band, music not so loud. Later most of the people could be found from Casourina.

    Which bank gives you 0.5%?
    I use Knab, a Dutch bank. They're the main reason I stopped using ING. ING charges 1% plus 2.75 EUR per withdrawal.

    If you refer Covid situation in Kenya, I have not followed so I don't know.

    There was Nigeria mentioned as place to visit. Getting visa there may be easy if there is Nigerian embassy in your home country, or in a country where you are resident. But if there is not, then it get's very difficult. I spend lot of time and money to try to get visa there in 2018, and did not succeed. I hope better luck to people in this forum who try it.
    Thank you Leblon it seams Keniya is not so bad then I thought. Maybe I will try it. If its bad I can easy go to Tanzania.

    Beach Bar revival?

    There is a Jamaican guy who has been very busy building up a very large place out of wood, makuti and a container next to the old beachbar, which unfortunately still remains closed.

    The whole complex consists of several bars on different levels and on the other side several basic rooms out of makuti and stonebeds, which seemingly have to serve as short time accomodations.

    Now the problem with the location is that it can be easily reached via the beach from Cobacabana beach when the water is low, but at high tide the place can only be reached via extremely bad roads through Maweni.

    At the time I visited the place there were no cushions available, so we had to sit on the bare concrete benches, byt maybe that has improved now.

    These days the Eagle Nest atttacts very few customers, it seems the owner (Jesus) has fallen in disgrace.

    Also the places opposite the Birchtensgaden Bar have disappeared.

    The Goldfish next door gets a lot of customers these days.

    There is the Yacht Lounge opposite Lambada which is quite nice and comfortable but I heard that in the evening you have to pay 1000 and then they put 4 beers on your table. You are not allowed to change them for cold ones after a while.

    The same in South Africa.

    Rates in the exchange opposite Ethiopian Air in town is very good.
    Maybe for an American. For a European I would recommend using a Maestro debit card and withdraw money at CoOp. Maybe DTB too, I never used it. My EU bank uses the actual exchange rate (yes, I checked) and only charge me 0. 5% forex fee. CoOp really doesn't charge anything. At least, not yet.

    What I do is bring cash an change it with Mike at his Bora Bora exchange shop, I then go and put all that money into my mpesa, no need to have any cash then apart from the odd few thousand shillings in the pocket. Much easier.

    I have been in Mombasa the last month. Mask wearing on the beach is nil, I still carry one and if I see Police I will pop it on and have at times been spotted and they say nothing. In Mtwapa / Nyali etc it is not worth the risk so I just wear it there.

    Casarina still gets busy at midnight as well as Big tree during the day, but Cheers has been pretty quiet lately. I have never been but Volume was busy over Christmas / NY but with the Nairobi crowd gone now I am not sure if it still attracts.

    DTB and NTSB bank charges me no withdrawal fee with my UK credit card.

Kenya seems difficult because of the corona thing so I thought about Senegal. France quoted it as a green country also no visa or pcr test if you have vaccine. But I not know if mongering is good there the forum is not active there. Let us know where you decide to go. Mars.

    For Kenyan cards withdrawel is still without fee.

    Equity did not have the 5 Dollar fee for international cards till March 2021.

    In the meantime I tried out DTB. They still have no additional fee but they calculate a lower exchange rate.

    So the best for me in 2022 is withdrawing the maximum amount of 40.000 from Equity and pay the 5 USD.

    Neddy.

    Who'll suffer a couple of months more in cold COVID / sex prison.
    Without considering COVID related restrictions, my list will be Sierra Leone, Ghana, Senegal, Nigeria, Cote the'Ivoire, and Togo? By order of user friendliness only.

    Of course, Tanzania in East Africa is the most open. In Southern Africa, I think South Africa is most open if you have your visa.

    Monday I will see on my account if it was a good idea to use DTB. At least on the receipt no additional fees are mentioned.
