  1. Brittany – Nairobi is a very very big city – most people speak English. In the more rural areas of Kenya people may not speak/read English but in the city it is very common.

  2. English is one of the official languages in Kenya. I like the Obama campaign slogan in the back (Change we can believe in). No big surprise though, since his father was from Kenya.
