Nairobi, the capital of Kenya, is also the capital of East Africa in many ways. It
is the financial and business center, as well as a transportation and communications
crossroad. With well over one million inhabitants and growing rapidly, Nairobi
has benefited greatly from Kenya's overall stability on a continent known mainly
for its lack of stability. As the largest city between Cairo and Johannesburg and the
UN's fourth "World Center", Nairobi is an often frantic mix of businessmen, diplomats,
tourists, and locals.
