Nairobi ! :-))
- Reached Nairobi today; a cornerstone in the run !
Many impressions go through you, when after thousands of km out in the contry, you once again hit one of the metropols of the world.
The exitement of seeing the amount of people, activity, oppotunities, conveniencies.
Often I cant sleep the first night when reaching one of these metropols; watching the city all night !
But seeing the big capitals from 'street running level' also brings other angels and other sensations; thourghts or philosophical wanderings..
- Like those inspired by the heavily painted busses wich sway in and out through the hectic suburban traffic, with their motto's written on the back window:
God made man
Man made money
Money made man Mad"
- cant help get that big city feeling each time.. ;-)
The Race for Consumption.
