The city of Nairobi is known by many names. The capital of Kenya, it has been called the ‘Green city in the Sun’ and ‘Nai-robbery’ due to its high crime rates. The original name however, is a Maasai term meaning a ‘stream of cool water’. The city originated as a transport hub and since then has expanded upwards and outwards to accommodate a population of over three million people! Its diminutive colonial buildings jostle for space with high-rises and concrete apartment blocks.
