Gikomba … a glimpse

with one comment

It’s probably the largest market for goods of all kinds in the city of Nairobi, Kenya. It’s like a big raging river. It’s full of life … selling … buying … dealing … bargaining … carrying … hissing … hooting … all that matters is ‘money flowing, money changing hands’. All budgets become functional here … one would find clothes selling at as little as US $0.25 … And the challenges are there … poor infrastructure, lack or inadequacy of such amenities as clean wash rooms, risk management items etc. Above all … crime levels are high … and cleanliness is yet another big challenge. All in all, life goes on … in spite of whether the structures are permanent and in good order or not. When in Nairobi … don’t miss the opportunity to visit the market … I’m sure you will enjoy it as much as I did. And, it’s not far … just 10 minutes ride on a Matatu from the CBD.
