Moving into my city will be so appealing due to the existing physical features as well as the hills which allows one to have an aerial view of Kakamega Tropical forest. Additionally, the visitor will have the opportunity to witness the much-celebrated bullfighting, cockfighting, the magical crying stone and the Isikuti dances.
