How Nairobi beats London according to US and UK diplomats

Bob Godec cloudy
It's been a cloudy greeting to London for US Ambassador Godec!

It may be a case of stating the obvious, but the current weather conditions in the UK are not great, especially if you are arriving from a warmer climate.

One visitor who has discovered this for themselves is US Ambassador to Kenya, Robert ‘Bob’ Godec who has Tweeted about the poor weather conditions in London on his arrival at Heathrow.

While he conceded that London is one of the great cities of the world, he said that the “cold, foggy” weather of London was inferior to that of Kenya, where he would rather have been.

UK High Commissioner to Kenya, Nic Hailey replied saying that he couldn’t argue with Mr Godec’s opinion on the weather.

We are betting that while British ex-pats living in Kenya may miss many things, the weather is unlikely to be one of them!
