started off by visiting a used car market. of course when trying to get directions to there no one knew what I was talking about until someone said the "car bazaar?" Yes, yes, that is it. It's so key to get the terminology down. Another example is when I had to get a couple gift certificates - but no one had them or knew what they were - that is because they are called gift vouchers.
Anyway, back to our day. We took a matatu and boda-boda (motorbike taxi) to get to the car market.
The car market was a good place to compare many different vehicles in once place and get an idea of the going rate. Funny, in Kenya, a car is 'new' if it has not been driven in Kenya before - of course they are usually at least three year old used cars from Japan.
Then off we went to Sarit and a bookstore so Matthew could use his gift voucher. Woo-hoo for him, he got the voucher for coming in 2nd place in his grade for his book about birds playing.
In our travels we ventured through a roadside market
Then we made our way downtown via bus and visited Nairobi's Central Park, not quite the Sheep's Meadow but pleasant nonetheless.
Eventually we found a carnival / festival, but I think it's this way every weekend.
Seems like all of Nairobi was out enjoying the afternoon.
Matthew thought he'd try the swing ride.
