Embakasi Train – The 45 Minute Ride to the CBD

Several Times I have taken the Embakasi Train to the CBD in the morning, this is the view when you sit, stand rather on the left hand side of the train. I will be lying if I tell I have ever stepped on it at Taj Mall and gotten a seat. I is usually full by the time it gets there. But it’s still okay. For Ksh 40/- and 35 – 45 minutes depending, you will be in town within the early minutes of 8 am. It needs humility though & patience, so for those who “I cannot get into a train”, hmmm, this is what we get to see, I took my camera with me today and this is what we shared with my 14mp lens. As usual, the prowess of a professional Cameraman is non-existent. So here goes the other side of Nairobi.

Right there is the Lunga Lunga Fly over.

I don’t know what I liked about these Rails.
