Nairobi in Perspective

Hi everyone. First things first, I deeply apologize for not updating my blog for such a long time. I hope that all of you have had a great time so far. Nairobi has had a series of very unpredictable weather changes with today’s being very dull. During this past two weeks that I have been away, I realised that some of the daily things we see and love to appreciate depend on the perspective to which we view them. A good example is captured by my post about Alleys in Nairobi and their beauty. On a normal occasion, one would hardly notice these alleys till someone sheds some light on them or something peculiar happens that would command your attention. In the end it all comes down to perspective.

The thing that I like about Nairobi is that you may get so many views of a particular part of it and all of them give off a very different feel and aspect. The architecture that is involved in building up this beautiful city is quite remarkable and also makes the city give off a different feel once other stimuli, for example, the weather changes. This affects the perspective that one has on everything that they see whether they are driving or walking in or around the city.

Well the truth of the matter is that everyone has their own different perspective of everything. The only downside is, most of us do not get the chance to share what their perspective about something is. This brings me back to part of my introductory post on this blog. This here is my perspective of Nairobi. One thing that I do know for sure is that there is a lot of information out there about this city both good and bad. Nairobi has a lot to offer in terms of scenery, beauty, creativity and also in all the activities that go on in and around the city.

The thing about of viewing something in different perspectives is you get to appreciate other factors that influence the look of whatever you are looking at. Aspects such as the incorporation of plants, trees and flowers, and other surrounding buildings or structures give off different views and perspectives of what is being observed.

I hope that this will help in giving a general idea of what to expect in future posts as I take you through a virtual journey through this beautiful city under the sun. Peace.

  1. Wonderful piece! Life is all about perspectives; and we make the world richer by sharing them. The converse is also true: the world is starved by those of us who hold our perspectives to ourselves.
