Maasai Market

having fun with a sales agent and some trader at the largest tourist market

Location: 

City Square, Nairobi, Kenya

Duration: 

Saturday, May 14, 2016

Personal highlights

  1. Maasai Market: there is a dozen of market places to reach all tourists or foreigners
  2. Sales agents: Kenyans are friendly, but quite aggressive and persistent sales people
  3. Extreme prices: the prices are beyond reasoning, up to tenfold the effective price
  4. Manufacturing: learning about dedicated production camps outside the big cities
  5. Rastafarian: having fun with a local trader about Kenyan eating habits (like ugali)
