Kenya is a country in East Africa. The Indian Ocean coast of Kenya near borders Somalia to the northeast and Tanzania to the south. Surrounding Kenya is Ethiopia and South Sudan to the north and Uganda to the west.
Kenya is a strange country: the cradle of humanity (the first trace of homo sapiens found in the Rift Valley, extending from Tanzania to Ethiopia, cutting through Kenya), is the best place to discover the natural wilderness, a blend of African, Arab and Indian cultures, has a bit of British imperialism. Someone once said that Kenya is like the British of Africa. Being the poorest country in the East African bloc, the Kenyans are somewhat arrogant with their very personal ego. They are not afraid to eat loudly in the middle of the road, do not be afraid to wear colorful clothes like nobody. The big city people speak English very well and like to speak English like to express.
But Kenya is not a country that is easy to fall in love with, and it takes time to feel and to talk about it. On the surface, Kenya is one of the most dangerous countries in Africa, with the capital Nairobi being called “Nairobbery” (robbery: theft), the largest slum in Africa. The deserted passersby made the passerby unable to raise his hair. But once you have missed the surface to dig deep into the rich and seductive Swahili culture, roam in national parks to get into the wilderness, wind up in the streets Swahili neckline but busy, the Arab traders floating on the sea, ecstatic on the beach as beautiful as the dream of Kenya, I just realized I loved Kenya themselves.
