Railway Station

waiting for hours at the historic site and meeting interesting characters

Location: 

Nairobi Railway Station, Nairobi, Kenya

Duration: 

Wednesday, July 6, 2016

Personal highlights

  1. Railway Station: looks like a museum from early 1900, not much changed
  2. Waiting: watching many trains come and go, yet not as much as in Europe
  3. Late-night Diner: ordering some chapati, not knowing when the train is ready
  4. Rift Valley Railwayboarding the train to Mombasa after 11 pm instead of 7 pm
  5. Ticketbox: the clerk mumbling something about 3 children (hopefully not me!)
