Muthaiga

Johan is living in Nairobi at the moment, and this is his hood. Muthaiga, it's called and it's overwhelmingly fancy, filled with Beverly Hills size houses occupied by rich people, diplomats and government officials from all across the globe. (Obviously Johan isn't part of that crowd. He just stays here because he got to rent a studio-sized guesthouse in the area.)

You aren't really allowed to take pictures of the houses - they have machine gun equipped guards to make sure you don't - so I've kind of pointed my camera at other things, like palm trees against a clear blue sky and that fiery red soil you see pictures of in National Geographic.
