Shopping Adventure

Nicole: On Friday, we called Karis and went to some of the malls in Nairobi. As I did not expect it to get so cold in Kenya, I left some of my warmer clothes in Ghana. So, we went searching for some warm clothes for me. Since we did not have much luck at the Exhibition Center a few days before, we decided that the mall would be the next best place to go shopping.

The mall was full of brand name stores and let me tell you, they were quite expensive. We walked around the whole mall but didn’t find anything beside some delicious berry ice cream. Karis took us to a few different malls but we didn’t have much luck.

We decided that we would put our clothing mission on hold and go over to Village Market. Little did we know that I would end up finding some warm clothes and beanies to buy while there. We also walked through the market, which was lined up with vendors selling art, jewelry, and all sorts of other things. It was much like Prestige, where we had done some shopping the previous week but was a lot bigger and full of a lot more vendors. We made friends with some of the vendors and they gave us some free stuff but we were lucky to have Karis do the rest of our bargaining for us.
