3 foodie spots in Nairobi

Nairobi is definitely a food spot. This city is a mix of different cultures and you can feel it in the food scene . I didn’t have the opportunity to try a lot during my 48H-stay but these 3 places really worth a visit! 

The Tin roof café

There is so much things to say about this little place in the suburb of Nairobi. The old fashioned atmosphere is lovely. Metal chairs with floral cushions, comfy couch, old pictures framed on the wall, everything is inviting.

Boho Eatery

Located in the very residential area of Karen, Boho Eatery will offer you a lovely and serene space for breakfast, brunch or lunch. The place was well recommended and was totally worth the trip. Beautiful setting in a big and luxurious garden, with a lovely patio. You totally understand the name when you arrive there : a lovely bohemian atmosphere is the best way to describe the place.

Bright and beautiful apartment in Nairobi ( Airbnb )

Nairobi is a beautiful and vibrant city. If you have the possibility to do a citytrip , you definitely should! Even if you are going on  safari in Magical Kenya, take some time for Nairobi : you will not regret it!

There is plenty hotels, but I am a airbnb addict. I love the idea to have a place for my own, to enjoy the city as a local for few days and following my rythm.

Bouquiner :  » Petit pays » Gaël Faye

Je ne vais pas vous faire une revue classique de ce roman. Tout le monde, ou presque, l’a lu, et tout le monde en a entendu parler. J’ai envie de vous parler de ce livre plus intimement. J’ai envie de vous expliquer pourquoi Petit Pays m’a bouleversée.

Je lis depuis toujours, mon père nous a toujours répété qu’on ne pouvait pas s’ennuyer puisqu’on savait lire. Alors lire est devenu mon activité préférée. J’ai adoré, aimé, détesté des tas de personnages de romans. Pas toujours le héros ou l’héroïne, j’ai souvent eu un faible pour les personnages secondaires. Ceux dont on parle moins mais qui comptent beaucoup.

Quand j’ai commencé Petit Pays, j’ai su que cette fois-ci quelque chose serait différent. Dès les premières pages, j’ai eu le coeur qui battait plus fort.

Expats VS Migrants

Il y a un sujet assez sensible dans la communauté des étrangers vivant en Afrique. Il y a 20 ans, la question ne suscitait pas vraiment de débat. Un européen ou un américain qui vivait en Afrique était considéré et appelé «  expatrié ». Un expatrié c’est, littéralement, quelqu’un qui vit hors de sa patrie. On pourrait donc se dire que c’est une forme d’émigration comme une autre. Cela dit, dans le langage courant ce terme n’est généralement utilisé que pour les occidentaux vivant en Afrique ou en Asie.
