I have been working on a post containing some thoughts related to the recent attack in Garissa attacks and the general atmosphere in Kenya at the moment. It is a heavy subject and has gone through a few drafts as I attempt to say what i want to in the best way. In the meantime, here is an image based post on some of the various modes of commuting available here in Nairobi.
Walking to the mall today and saw these guys coming up the street
Camel looked at me all “don’t tag me Bro, am not supposed to be here”
A shot of the Museum Hill fly-over.
The Blue bus is one of the coach busses that do the cross country trips
Some notable flair in one of the Matatus
Plush Zebra seats cause reasons
Signs like this are there since some Public transport vehicles pick up or drop passengers at ‘odd’ places
Some street performers at the Ambassador BusStop. Almost all busses have a terminus in town, this is one of the bigger ones.
Out on the way to Ruai say these Donkey-Carts
Jambojet is a local low cost carrier. Similar to Easyjet or Ryan air
So coming back from Kisumu my bro and I were on this propellor plane. It flies lower than jet engines. It was delayed possibly due to a storm. It was an hour flight. In the clouds. The stormy clouds. People were not talking
This was in Out of Africa
Another shot of the Tractor at the Karen Blixen Museum
Karen Blixen, whose story was the basis for the movie Out of Africa
…Freeeed Sanford had a Sonnn…
…and a truuuck
The Chinese helped build some new roads
Just a cool bike I saw at Lavington Green
May have one someday.
PikiPiki, motorcycles used as couriers and Taxis. They have been very useful in the city but id say invaluable in the rural areas.
Another Camel…should it be on the footpath?
Bike show in Industrial area
Quick sketch. I draw
I’ll see about getting getting my thoughts together on the aforementioned post. it may be a long one but ill try to get it out by tomorrow.
- Go Getter Jet Setter Site with 33 Facts that make Flying Ultra-safe : on the pictured prop plane, I was on my phone searching for info on flying and storms, especially in prop planes. They are designed to handle it and in general rain or other precipitation does not affect the planes ability to fly in the least.
- Video Of the Post : Short clip of the Bike event in those last two images.
