Jewels From Nairobi, Kenya

Greetings from the East!! And by this I mean Nairobi, Kenya. I'm having a blast at the 2012 Global Voices Citizen Media Summit! I promise a post about the actual summit is coming soon. I just couldn't help sending a bit of a teaser! It's only day 2 and yet it feels like a week!

First of all, I should say that I've been really impressed with some things in Kenya - the architecture in the city and if I'm not mistaken, the preservation of some greenery, are features to talk about - well, in comparison to Ghana, of course. I haven't been able to take any pictures of buildings due to security reasons - Kenya is on high security alert due to the Mombasa bombing and currently frowns upon tourists taking pictures of buildings.  

But, I have some shots. I went to the Masai market, one of the most famous markets in Kenya, with other GVers and we had a blast shopping and bargaining with vendors. Kenya's fashionable handicrafts are amazing! The bead necklaces, earrings, scarves, purses, whoa! You can munch on these images for the time being. More posts coming!
