Street Shops

Street Shops

shopping in the streets is so much more fun than going to a sterile mall

Location: 

Kibera Dr, Nairobi, Kenya

Duration: 

Friday, July 1, 2016

Personal highlights

  1. Shops: why bother going to a mall, when you can get everything in the streets
  2. Clothes: mostly second hand from Europe, bought at Gikomba and then resold
  3. Exhibition: hanging into trees or just spreading out on the ground, very simple
  4. Entrepreneurs: so many independent traders, trying to make a decent living
  5. Everything: you can basically get everything in the streets, everything!
