We certainly have had more news coverage of Kenya since Barack Obama became President but the people are really friendly and easy to strike a conversation with. They are pretty informed despite them being in a country away from their home.
I love their English! They speak so well and fluently!

The Kenyans themselves will have this welcoming effect on you; they are a very gentle, kind and helpful race of people.

The people are really warm and helpful and that definitely made my experience worth remembering.
Smart, innovative and go-getter people.
