Ghosts - Juliet Barnes - 'My mother's family had farmed at Dundori, north-west of Happy Valley at an even higher altitude. From the back of their bamboo house they could see the peaks of Mount Kenya behind the hump of the Aberdares, the latter's lower slopes protecting the secrets of Happy Valley, almost always shadowy and dark, often obscured by cloud. My mother's older sister, Susan, now in her 80s wrote from England: "I do remember my mother pointing out Lady Idina sitting on a chair on the verandah of the Stag's Head Hotel in Nakuru. It didn't mean a thing to me, I just thought she was another memsahib."
