A small Image based post of Norse Green Estate where I once lived. First in the early ’90s and a second time for a little over a year in the early ’10s.
Ah ze nostalgia. This is a footpath adjacent to the Estate. It connects Muguga Green Road to Waiyaki Way.
Some hazardous walking to be had. It does make one pay attention and encourage flexibility of your ankles during regular walks.
The foundation stone was laid on the 21st of March, 1969. If I am nto mistaken it may have housed a number of the staff from the Norwegian Embassy. Norse Green. Thank you Norway.
In the ’90s, there was a basketball hoop set up close to where that truck is.
Where I stayed in the ’90s
Where I stayed in the ’10s. It felt a bit off and was a bit peeved that we moved house when I found out for sure.
In the 2 previous pictures you can see the rooves of the homes. These were mostly connected and as kids we would climb onto them and run around the estate. Especially to feast on Loquats from these trees.
I recall one occasion when we were playing and saw the edge of a wall of rain come fomr one end of the Estate. We did not outrun it but it was quite novel.
This is some Hobbitton isht right here. Many fond emmories of running up this hill to get Candy form the kiosk at the top.
Goodbye. Good Memories.
:::Sniffles::: Nice place. Solid homes, but rather small after coming back as a ‘grown up.’
This is an estate almost 50 years old. There are many other estates and housing options in Nairobi. One of the biggest pluses to this place was the enclosed out doors. There was a gate with the circular road around the Estate and a Walled interior where the backyards of the homes were. This enabled the us children to have relative freedom and safety, to enjoy time outside.
That is it for this post.
This is also Nairobi.
