Nairobi, the Capital of Kenya – This is part 2 of my Masai Mara Kenya Travelogue
Nairobi, the second largest city in Africa (after Cape Town), has a large Indian population who mostly control the local business. Nairobi is a progressive city and on that particular day the city was hosting an international soccer match against Uruguay, their arch rival in football. The stadium area was lively with supporters, fans and hawkers thronging the streets. Karen Blixen Avenue, named after the Dutch author, is one of the up market areas of the city. She is famous for her memoir on her life in Kenya titled “Out of Africa” which was later made into a successful Hollywood film. This was the nicest area of Nairobi which we saw.
