A very nice experience indeed. I did venture to the Nakumatt grocery store at lunchtime for some sunshine, exercise, and Diet Coke. Nine years in Africa have hardened me to the reality of crossing streets during rush hour, even with traffic on the "wrong" side of the road. I was surprised to find, compared to when I lived here in 1999-2000 and my last visit in 2006, that the streets are clean and well-swept. Nice job, Nairobi!
And now I'm ready for some Stoney Ginger Beer.
