Loving Nairobi

I decided to pop into Nairobi for a short visit over the Ethiopian New Year weekend, and I am still in surprise mode. Nairobi has certainly changed; construction on some key roads is completed., there is a lot of urban stretch, and apartment buildings are a dime a dozen. Many businesses are moving from the typical, expected CBD location/site and are now venturing into the surrounding suburbs. Returnees from the diaspora are fully present and easily identified and the young Kenyan professional archetype is taking hold. This is not the Nairobi in which I grew up but it certainly feels like a Nairobi that has moved forward and grown up. Just like us.
