Nairobi

Category: Uncategorized<ADMINNICENAME> @ 7:01 AM

I got a chilly welcome when I arrived in Nairobi this morning on a Virgin flight from London. June is perhaps the coldest month of the year here, and many wore jackets on the ground. We hit a big traffic jam on the way to my hotel, near the Israeli embassy. Wi-fi worked immediately, and the hotel’s staff were excellent — ending immediately any concerns I might have that Kenyans are back to work after the post-election troubles. They are.
My arrival coincides with Odinga’s appearance in Washington, where he is talking about his important reconciliation agenda. The Nation newspaper had a good, if brief, account of the new Prime Minister’s speech before a DC think-tank.
