Extreme matatus!


You haven’t experienced a matatu ride until you’ve done it in Nairobi. For those not in the know, a matatu is a minibus taxi or in Nairobi, a converted Isuzu truck or pimped up bus! 

Well, we learned in Nairobi because it takes a special skill to hail a matatu. First you stick out your hand as the matatu approaches, then you stand out of the way at least 3 feet lest you get run over by your ride!

Duck while you jump in and find a seat. If you don’t duck you’ll find yourself with a head wound as both me and Fin has learned the hard way. 

In the front this time

 
And that’s how you navigate matatus like a boss!
