me, i'm mie. actually it's mette-marie but most people call me mie, and that's fine. i'm a coffee buyer, blogger and a norwegian. i broke up with my previous blog and most of my life in norway, and started this one when i lived in san francisco - thus, the name. but, like my friend says: "there will be other san franciscos". this is the story about those places.

rarely, but usually still a lot of fun.
Anonymous asked: Would You Rather Fight a Horse-Sized Duck or a Hundred Duck-Sized Horses?
I only just now realized I have a lot of heart warming messages and weird questions here on Tumblr! I had no idea! Thank you all, I’ll post some of them, and some will remain private.
One hundred duck-sized horses seems more doable, no?
Much to write about nothing
I am sitting in what has become my home office desk in Walter’s apartment, when I should have been working, but it is too early, and the morning light in Nairobi is too beautiful - and the traffic too loud and crazy. I usually leave the apartment at the crack of dawn, walk over to the nearest cafe, eat a muffin while I glare out on traffic, wondering if it’ll ever start moving. It usually doesn’t, and then I am late. Sometimes maybe even hours late.
But mostly, Nairobi, and East Africa has been good to me, like always. I also went back to Ethiopia, but that is a whole different story, and my heart was sore the whole time because I walked the same streets, did the same things, drank the same lemonade, but without a certain someone. Thankfully, work was a good distraction. I am headed back to the Pacific North West in a couple of days, then back to Central America, back to less ordinary every days, with no muffins, and some big decisions to make.
