Juxa- there are so many threads/posts that offend my sensibilities. The number of sexist, qabiilist and/or islam bashing posts are getting out of hand.

 

Stoic- not sure if i like that picture. I have heard of the failed expeditions of some nomads from the West but i've also heard of many success stories. Anyway, more interested in the lifestyle and security.

 

Good evening all.

Rahima,

 

The lifestyle in Kenya depends on how much your pocket can afford. You can literally live a sheltered lifestyle. You can live in a good neighborhood and have your kids attend the best schools. But this is beyond the means of the common citizen.As often in life there are pleasant and not so pleasant aspect of life you have to put up when living somewhere.Life tend to be slower in Kenya.You could easily sport the distinct inequality of lifestyle. People are either rich or poor.Rarely do you see middle class families.This is not to say people are not comfortable. It seems like many people are living comfortable life within Kenyan Standard.

 

The sprout of Somali malls in Eastleigh is testament to the consumer culture of average Kenyan.I have been invited to homes of rich Somalis and I can say that they live better life than I do in the West.I was able to suss out the secret of their Kenyan success and it seems that they were hard working God-fearing business men. The Islamic atmosphere appealed to me and it was great to hear the five daily adhan on loudspeakers. Even though they stole my shoes at the masjid I still never missed a jamaa since they were masjid everywhere.

 

I’m not going to lie to you and pretend that it was heaven. I was really bored to death after the second week of getting invited in different homes for lunch or dinner.Kenya is known for its treasure of animal parks and Safari expedition, but THIS is something way beyond the means of the common citizen. One thing I found about myself in this trip is that I can not live in a city that has no accessible library.I was disappointed to have to drive miles and miles to buy a book or find a nice cup of coffee (thanks to JAVA cafe for nice coffee).This is something that made me realize that I love my books and coffee.

 

The security was good.I didn't experience any threat or was I harassed by the Kenyan police. Even though I speak the language fluently I still think anyone can be comfortable here without feeling like outsider.Things have changed and people are more free and roaming freely.

The smell of new book and the tactile feel of turning pages still appeals to me. It's a habit but I think I'm moving more and more towards kindle though
