Ah, I mean three, sorry about thatÂ ?
On Wednesday our driver Elias and I picked up Barbara from the airport. Her story is amazing. She always wanted to go to Africa. Paul told her that I’m here in September and he would also invite her. So we met a few days before I left Vienna and she spontaneously decided to join us. One week later she was in the airplane. How amazing is it? I love people like herâ€¦ I mean, I considered myself so spontaneous because I decided to go to Prague for a weekend a few hours before the bus started. But that story tops it a lot!
Walking through Ruaka
On the next day we used the time to explore the area we live in. It’s a small but growing town on the border of Nairobi.
After lunch we started our trip to Nairobi city. With Elias we had our personal tour guide on our side.
We decided to take a Matatu to Nairobi, CBD. A Matatu is a small bus which can transport max 14 people. It has a driver and a conductor. The conductor picks up passenger, collects money and tells the driver when to stop. He does that by opening the door while driving and banging his hand on the roof of the vehicle. They often leave the car and jump on again when it’s already pretty fast. All in all it’s a fun experience to be on such a thing.
