A large part of my time in Nairobi has been spent driving to and from work and my host-home. The drive spans the length of Nairobi, and in the morning can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours. In the evening, we are lucky to make it back in an hour; typically it takes around two.
Needless to say, I finally remembered to start bringing a book. But every once in a while, the ridiculous drive, traffic and sights inspired me to document the trip. So, welcome to Nairobi (as seen from a car)!
If you get motion-sick easily, I recommend skipping this one. Roads are not kept in the best shape.

Thanks, Pegah! It was fun to make…made the drive go by faster and helped me find the humor in it. 🙂
The rainy season is “over,” so they say…I don’t buy it. It is overcast most days and probably rains an average of three days a week. Could be worse, I suppose! It also rains more in the hilly part of Nairobi where I am living.

Thanks Karin and Iain!
I wish the traffic was moving that quickly…the video was definitely sped up as fast as iMovie would allow!
