I recently traveled to Kibera in Nairobi, Kenya – the largest and most well-known slum in Africa, home to over a million people most of whom live on less than a dollar a day – to meet Mr. Hassan Abdul Salim, the coach of the ‘Kibera Olympic Boxing Team’.
My photo of a Samburu woman shot on my trip to Kenya earlier this is on the cover of issue 2 of the iPad magazine “Latitude”.
As a follow-up to the last post about the free party in Kibera, it’s another video post, also shot at the same free party.
This time it’s those pesky kids again.
Kibera is the largest and probably most famous slum in Africa.
Over a million people living mostly on less than $1 U.S. a day.
During my Kenya trip I spent a lot of time there, partly for work and partly to hang out with some friends I’d made.
One of the things that stuck me about the place was how happy the children seemed, despite their circumstances.

For part 2 of the Lamu posts, a little history, some dry facts and some tourist snaps. Well, kind of.
Lamu-Part 1-Ass! A tribute to the humble beast of burden.
