Nairobi, Sort Of
Nairobi is Kenya's capital, the place where transport meets– airplane, bus, and train– and therefore a place we have to go. We don't expect to like it (the guidebook refers to it helpfully as "Nairobbery"), and we don't afford the city much chance to impress. When the bus lets us off, we call an Uber.
We've been engaging in much more backpacker-style travel: showing up and requesting rooms night-of, asking locals where to catch the matatu. But a capital city affords some conveniences I'm eager to test in Kenya. We've reserved an Airbnb room.
