A Different Picture of Africa

January 3, 2011 · Print This Article

Muraho from Kigali, Rwanda!

I think I have a strange obsession with office buildings. Every time I drive by the new Quintiles office building in Raleigh, North Carolina where I live I get excited.

Take a look at these photos I took Thursday of some of the buildings in Nairobi, Kenya. It’s a different picture of East Africa than what one usually sees. Do these pictures surprise you?

The 21st century Africa is about opportunity, technology, and entrepreneurship!

More from Rwanda in the coming days…

    Thank you very much for this post. It isn’t the normal perception of Africa, is it? Those are some beautiful office buildings. Seeing these pictures gives a little hope to the usually bleak outlook on Africa.

Got something to say?
