NAIROBI (AFP) – US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Wednesday gave a ringing endorsement to one feature of the Kenyan capital Nairobi -- its hairdressers.

As she launched an 11-day tour of Africa, Clinton noted -- and not with pleasure -- that Americans have long paid close attention to how she wears her hair.

"My hairdoes have been the subject of Ph.D. theses, so I want everybody to know that I got a good one in Nairobi," Clinton said in an aside to an economic forum involving some 40 African countries.

Besides doing a commendable job on her hair, Clinton said that the two local hairstylists offered insight about Nairobi.

"They said it's a wonderful place and a great place to raise children," Clinton said.

They said it's a wonderful place and a great place to raise children," Clinton said.

Hillary found her village--"It takes a village."

She didn’t say anything about the many almost abandoned villages occupied by only old folks, children and dogs. The rest of the villagers died of AIDS.

“My hairdoes have been the subject of Ph.D. theses,”

As odd as it seems, that factoid, or her saying it, doesn’t really surprise me.

"She will travel to the violence-wracked east of the Democratic Republic of Congo to meet with survivors of soaring sexual violence."

At least this is a positive stop on her trip!!!
