    artsy fairyland made of recycled glass

    by sphynxxs Written Aug 6, 2012

    Kitengela glass factory is just outside Nairobi off the road towards Magadi. While you can buy the products in a number of Nairobi malls, it is worth visiting the factory to watch the "making of..." or buy some of their discounted products. Most of all, it´s worth visiting the place to see the sculptures and art made of recycled glass (if you want, you can also cross a gorge via a suspension bridge). If you buy glass, make sure to hold it tightly on the way back: The road is VERY bumpy.

    go to river road at least once.
    It's where the real nairobi is not the hiltons and intercons. Try any bar there juat dont wear shorts and ignore the prostitutes {or not if you have adeath wish} Also for a good pub outside town try Kengeles in Westlands. Good music good beer good service
