While in Nairobi, I visited the national park, zoos, museums, malls, forest reserves, rivers and falls. In addition, I took a closer look at the city's booming real estate market. As usual, I conducted several book club sessions and gave away free copies of books procured from Exposure Publishers. 

Nairobi amazed me. It is the only city in the world that has a national park within its boundaries. During my unforgettable game drive in Nairobi National Park, I couldn't believe I was in the city. I felt the same way while trekking in Karura Forest. I didn't have to leave the city to bond with Mother Nature. 

When it comes to the conservation of nature in urban areas, the capital of Kenya is in a class of its own. However, at some point, I felt like I was a trespasser in a wildlife habitat. Is there a harmonious coexistence between human beings and wild animals in this unique metropolis? Looks that way. 

Over the next two weeks or so, I will be sharing my experiences through a series of short stories published right here. In the end, the content will be repackaged to create a booklet. The final product will eventually be added to the Exposure Publishers' collection and distributed through the activities of the Turning Pages Book Club. 

My tour of Nairobi was both entertaining and informative. I indulged in a wide range of recreational activities and spared some time to learn. Speaking of learning, I gathered a ton of information from the national museum and the national archives. In addition, I interacted with Kenyans from all walks of life and captured their spirit.
