Welcome to Hubpages, a forum to learn about practically everything from a vibrant international community. Reading about ancient civilizations is my addiction. I have also done extensive reading on Kikuyu culture and compared it with Egypt's 18th Dynasty. Besides, you can find my published books for adolescents and young readers at your nearest bookshop.

I have formed certain opinions about the Kikuyu and their origins in ancient Egypt and wish to share them with you here at Hubpages. - Akhenaten and the Kikuyu People of Kenya or Kikuyu People: Secrets of an ancient migration from Egypt to Mount Kenya - are examples of my hubs in a comparative style. Akhenaten’s Grandmother and the Kikuyu is yet another hub in the series. This man Akhenaten has taken much of my writing energy and I have even theorized about where he disappeared to.

Besides my obsession with Akhenaten, I write on many issues, though, like all writers, I have my pet subjects. Talking about pets, I am an aquarist of long standing, and even turned the hobby into a business for close to two decades. I have shared my experience with you in several hubs. If you are planning to keep fish someday you can get practical lessons on making and maintaining an aquarium in - Glass Fish Tank: how to make your own aquarium.

Kikuyu language and culture is at the core of my posts on Hubpages. Learn the Kikuyu Language:- vocabulary and conversation practice is my flagship with the most visitors per day. This is an indication that Kikuyu people in the Diaspora and other language enthusiasts are keen to see that this ancient language lives on in the global village. I promise not to disappoint. You will see from my comparative writing between Kikuyu and Ancient Egypt that it is in the interest of humanity to study this language and extract the embedded historical records that have been preserved for thousands of years. I hope that others with working knowledge of endangered languages will ensure that those languages are also preserved through similar posts.

Besides my day job as a Designer for Museum Exhibitions, I also translate from Swahili and Kikuyu into English and vice versa. As an accomplished artist, I work in Fibre-glass, accrylics and oil paints when I can take some time off from my writing, which is getting rarer and rarer this days. I have illustrated many books for publishers in Nairobi, but currently I only illustrate my own work writing.

My latest artistic pursuit is in Taxidermy. I have posted a hub on how I made a Dodo bird using fibreglass in the taxidermy technique.
