Walking Everywhere

One thing that has astounded me time and again is the number of people in Nairobi that make their commute by foot.  Everywhere, all day, you can see hundreds of people on any given street moving to and from work or running errands.  Sidewalks are nearly non-existant and most are just dirt/mud with some grass in the area.  Rains don’t help.  One thing you never see…people running for exercise…unless they’re training for the Olympics.  I got some weird looks as I went out for a quick run yesterday to do some shopping.
