We (of course!) went to Java House for a milkshake, and I had to grab a photo of one of our sidewalk obstacles. It's not the best picture, but what you're looking at is a gaping hole that takes up the whole of the sidewalk - you have to walk onto the street and/or make a big jump to get over it. And it's been like that so long that somebody's discarded roasted maize (like BBQ corn on the cob, a favourite street treat here) has SPROUTED and grown into a three or four foot tall stalk. Oh, Nairobi!
