I am planning on going to Nairobi in three weeks. I met a woman who came to California and we have become very serious. Because she has to work most of time will be spent in Nairobi, and I will be alone during weekdays.
I am kind of alarmed and worried to Nairobi after reading the alarming State Department warnings. I know those warnings can be overblown.
How safe is it really to walk around the city on my own being a white male? What are the safe areas and where should I avoid? Also shots/vaccinations, I am getting the madatory yellow fever vaccine. What about hepititas and typhoid? I am leaving to soon for the hep. shot. It also seems like many posters say to bring anti-malerials. Do you have a brand and does you reccomend? To make things even more interesting, I have a somewhat weak sensitive stomach, is it risky to eat fresh fruit?
What are some places you reccomend seeing in the city. I have to be there three weeks because my girlfriend is working. And some good day trip excursions?
Overall does one really have to be worried, is it really that dangerous?
