rebuilding a complete city from scratch, but missing out the fundament

Location: 

Kilimani, Nairobi, Kenya

Duration: 

Wednesday, June 15, 2016

Personal highlights

  1. Kilimani: uprising and growing district between the city center CBD and Karen
  2. Buildings: on every second street there is a new apartment block on the rise
  3. Scaffolds: most constructions are made out of bamboo and aren't straight
  4. Concert: construction sites sound like a concert of drums without machines
  5. Energy: all this construction work causes regular power and internet outages
