Indian community in Nairobi

One of the reason why Safari in an awesome experience is that we can meet a lot of new people from different countries and cultures. People who came from different places on the globe just to see a birds, animals or African culture, like Masai. Me myself I had this lovely oppotunity to meet Krupali and her family during my adventure in savannah 🙂 Orinally Indian, living in Kenya or England and creating an Indian community from generations.  It was a truly honor to meet them and see a bit of their life and get to know that in Nairobi there are not only black people who share the Kenyan identity.

I was actually pretty lucky because Krupali was joining only the first part of my 7 days safari. Moreover as she lives in England she was just visiting her Indian/Kenyan family for a short period. There was really something special about this girl and her relatives. So polite, calm and sophisticated. What was also special about her family is that there were Jaina. It’s a one of the oldest Indian religions. Self-discipline and asceticism are major focuses of Jainism and it prescribes a path of non-injury towards all living beings. Maybe that’s why I felt this special spirit of my new Indian/Kenyan friends?

Besides that the day with them was extramely interesting and ….tasty, thanks to Krupali’s mum snacks 😉 Check out the gallery I’ve just posted.
