I was taking one of my daily walks and came across this. I felt It needed to be photographed and cataloged as an example of blatantly targeting women. Why single them out? Why focus on them in this way? Would this be ‘allowed’ to happen in other countries?!?
Free AA Kenya Membership?! Are they saying women do not make money? is their money not good enough?? That they can’t fill out membership forms??? This should be given to Men, those drunkards would likely confuse it for Alcoholics Anonymous.
Free annual Spa treatment? Why not Monthly hmmmmmmmm?!
Discounted health treatment at leading Hospitals?!? Not only is this Body shaming but why not ALL hospitals. What is this leading nonsense?!?!? probably some man that decided which are leading.
Your facts are sexist. Also #EVERYDAYSEXISM you put eyelashes on the headlight!
Ok. Enough of that, haven’t posted in a bit. Time is flying and I should be flying in about 3 weeks. This post contains pictures from a walk I took a few days ago. Some notes and such included in the pics. Enjoy Nairobi.
New roads have been built, bypasses to lessen traffic. The Blue is Consolata Catholic Primary School that me n my Bro attended for a bit.
Riverside, the trees are Nairobi Arboretum Park which i cut through. Separate post on that shortly.
Impressive piece of Grafitti
Hike through Arboretum
Cool wheeled truck.
CBD coming down from State House Road
Uhuru park in the CBD
Grafitti on the side of the Highway
This is the location of Voice of Kenya and Kenya Broadcasting Corporation. They may have been the first major Radio and Television broadcasters.
I think this may be the liberal arts department at Nairobi University
Nirobi Univesity Tower Sprung up rather quickly.
Nairobi University Tower
This is a footbridge by Nairobi Universit. Well needed and being used much more.
I liked these spring leaves on this tree
Museum Hill Fly-over
Museum hill is called such as the National Museum is on a hill there.
The flyover. This used to cause a trafic jam but Nairobians seem to be adjusting.
I iked the contrast of the Paint wiht the unfinished building
like this horror movie building
Sidewalks being built. Yay!
The inclusion of roadsigns and directions are a good addition.
May not like Billboards but that is a well designed one
You still see some of these old homes on large tracts of land that have yet been switched to denser buildings.
Sidewalks can eb non-existent. This is not entirely bad as it makes your walk mroe of an ofroading experience, adding flexibility to your ankles 🙂
Gas is about a Dollar but remember many peoepl live on a dollar a day. Things are relative.
My Nephew was born here. mP Shah Hospital.
Some interesting architecture around the city.
When in traffic you often
I am not sure if this is some sort of Jest. I do think some would take it upon themselves to be offended in some places.
The Oval. Need to double check but this may eb some of the msot expensive rents in the city.
on the way to Westgate Mall
Westgate Mall is open once more. Security as expected is tighter.
Advertising by Westgate. They opened up a new road by cutting through the woods in the background. It will be a huge help.
I like this building.
Yeah so still havent been to ocean basket. Still not a fan of billboards
It is cool how kids commute to and form school on their own. Despite what some may say, Nairobi is rather safe.
Here is the last pic. A Lesbian not being thrashed by angry Kenyans as they are wont to be.
Lil girl is clearly a lesbian. Why wear a rainbow? No possible way that the rainbow is just a rainbow or has many other meanings besides what is currently touted by some. If it has any connotation locally it would likely still be to the biblical fable of Noah and the Arc if you take into account the local religiosity.
Living in different places leaves one wiht the understanding that symbols change and perception does a lot. It is beneficial to take time to think about what you do and do not know. Why does X stand for Y here and have no meaning there, even though so and so insists that they hate Y in that place due to something to do with X?
