Nairobi is infamous for its crime and poverty but as with any big city, this kind of one-sided categorization is simplistic. Yes, it's home to one of the world's biggest slums (Kibera) and yes, the car-jacking and robbery rates are a significant worry. Yet there are signs everywhere of economic development and the streets are thronging with hustlers who aren't just there to harass the (almost non-existent) tourists but to make a living and move on up. Visitors who expect only "TIA" cliches may be surprised by the diversity of neighborhoods and the number of hipster coffee shops, juice bars and slick clothing stores that are strewn across the city.
