Don’t Drive Here

We are thankful to have transportation here in the city.

Our truck is big, tough, a little beat-up and old. Other vehicles give us wide berth on the roads. It means we can travel safely with Little Bear in his car seat, make trips to the game parks, easily carry our groceries after a big shop at Nakumatt and go out after dark without paying a taxi.

Bear’s piki (motorcycle) is big and loud. He drives it to and from work cutting down his commute time to and from the hangar by as much as 45 minutes to an hour. He’s become an expert at weaving in and out of traffic.

To give you a taste of our traffic, check out the video by Discovery Channel below. Just watching the first few minutes will show you road life. At around 2:59 you can see what Caleb might encounter driving his piki around Nairobi.
