The Deribe’s gold house, it is unusual to say a gold house but believe me or not it is true a house made of marble and gold isn’t that magnificent. Well entering the house is another thing entirely taking you to another level of life whereby you will be wondering if really you are on earth or paradise. Walking on the long corridor which I was told by one of his son Talba Ahmed Deribe a lawyer by profession, said that it is the longest corridor in the whole West Africa, I was like “heh” wait a minute, does that mean am now standing on the longest corridor in West Africa.
My mood changed immediately feeling like a royal queen in her palace. We walked some few distance, when we were directed to the kitchen, “wow” I said to myself seeing such a big kitchen as if it is for a five-star hotel at that moment I now know that when it comes to design people can be really creative to give such a wonderful turnout.All the equipment you can think of is available comparing to the years that the house is being built, they really tried.
