On my 4th trip to Kenya last month, I finally had time to visit the US Embassy memorial. Inside the compound, there is indeed a small, grassy park -- quite full of Kenyans doing various activities on the afternoon I visited. Other than the outdoor plaque with the victims' names, the memorial itself is in a small building on the grounds. It is jam-packed with photographs and materials. I found it to be both interesting and moving. The memorial also shows a film -- about 30 minutes long -- about what happened. It had kind of an odd tone (kind of like a 1950's/60's era propaganda film, to me at least), but I found it very informative. The embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania are not often discussed in the US. I learned a lot from my visit.
