Cape to India

These guys came through Nairobi on their way from South Africa to India. I spotted their vehicle leaving a shopping center parking lot and knew there was a story. I whipped out my camera and took a couple of shots. In the process, I was able to have a quick discussion with the driver.

He said they had been robbed the night before - all their cameras had been stolen. This city is often called, "Nairobbery". I was so sad to hear their tale - they had come all that way to have this happen.

Africa does not have a system of highways traversing the continent - they had to ford rivers and go on dirt tracks for thousands of kilometers - only to be violated here in the big city.

Wow, that's a super long road trip! What an adventure. So sad to have things stolen. It seems so pointless to lose stuff like that.
