Roadside sites

One of our responsibilities includes helping find places for the young missionaries live. These pictures were taken along the road to a small suburb of Nairobi called Buru Buru where I was checking out a place.

This is a masonry supply yard. Almost all buildings are constructed out of these solid concrete blocks or poured concrete, because there is such a termite problem.

Buru Buru's version of Checker Auto or Auto Zone.

This is the local hardware store.

Neighborhood butcher shop without refrigeration.

These colorful cars warn drivers on the road that these cars are being driven by student drivers, notice that they even have the trucks painted brightly for those learning to drive a truck. Everyone is required to take driving lessons.
