Ilikuwa nderemo na vifiji pale Bw Marko Cheseto alipofanikiwa kupata msaada wa masomo ya juu katika nchi ya Marekani. Waweza kuiwaza hali ilivyokuwa katika kijiji chake pale ilipobainika kwamba kijana huyu, kupitia kipawa chake na umaahiri wake wa kukimbia, amekubaliwa kusomea katika Chuo Kikuu Cha Alaska.

Kijana huyu, ambaye nafiri amezaliwa katika Bonde La Ufa, mwahali ambapo joto hufikia hata 130 F, hakumpata yeyote ambaye angemfahamisha kwamba, nchi za Magharibi, hasa Alaska kule Marekani, huwa na hali ya hewa ambayo ni yakusikitisha na kuogovya. Na pengine hakwenda katika tovuti ya mtandao wa  Google, wala kumuuliza yeyote, kwa yale angeyakusudia kuyapata punde atakapotua katika uwanja wa ndege wa  Jimbo hilo la baridi la Alaska.

Kijana Cheseto, kama ilivyokuwa kwako na kwangu mara zile za mwanzo mwanzo, aligutuka, akashikwa na bumbuwazi mara ilivyovichuka mengi na kinyume cha kule alikotoka. Maakulo, mila, desturi na utamaduni wa ugenini, hali ya hewa na mazingara, uchomozaji na utoekaji wa jua, jinsi ya kukabiliana na kuanguka kwa dhoruba ya theluji inayofwatwa na barafu kali,  kwa kujivisha kabuti, bila shaka yalimzuzua Bw Cheseto.

Ni kisa cha kuhusunisha na kusikitisha, lakini pia ni funzo kwa Wakenya wote wanaotarajia kuishi Marekani na nchi zinginezo za Magharibi kwamba, ni muhimu kufanya tovuti ya kutosha ili kuelewa hali ilivyo katika mataifa haya kabla hujaamua kufunga virago.
