On New year's day here in Kenya like in Canada everything is closed so we took the oportunity to spend some time at the center and to visit and chat with locals. There are always a number of people travelling the streets on foot between Mary's house and the center .
Some interesting and peculiar sights for us ...
Instead of a coffee break men often snack on sugar cane. Sugar cane looks like cornstalk. They chew the stalk to suck out the sugar then spit out the pulp.
This is a common sight. A "Matatu" is a 12 passenger van that operates like a small shuttle bus. It is not uncommon to see 15 people jammed into the seats and three more hanging out the open sliding door even while driving down the highway.
The three wheeler "tuktuk"on the right is generally only used to transport people within the city.
