Exhibition Day

IMG_5482IMG_5484After a nice lie in this morning Elle, Lola, Lana, Keji and I were taken to Adam’s arcade (a local market in Nairobi) to have a look around and buy any souveniers and other traditional Kenyan things. I’m glad we had the chance to see a bit more of Nairobi today as the sun was shining and we all have had a very busy week working on our projects at KU. I think we all got some pretty cool things to take back home with us! By the time we got back to the hostel we only had enough time to pick up Peter, Lewes and Oscar who had been working on their project for the exhibition all morning. We arrived at Alliance Française in central Nairobi for the exhibition where Fred and some others from Sema had already started to set up in the morning. My first impression of the printed photographs hanging in the gallery was wow!. The photos looked great and we were all really pleased with the quality. The only slightly disappointing thing was that we weren’t really given enough space on the wall to hang all the photographs and the captions that told stories about the people. The venue was really busy as there were other events going on, so when it came to the audio and film groups to present their projects the sound wasn’t the greatest. But the exhibition still carried on and it was a really nice way to celebrate working with all the students at KU, and the people of SEMA with lots of food and drink. It was a little bit sad to say goodbye so soon to such a fun group of people, but I’m really looking forward to getting out of the city and meeting the people in Rongo. 🙂
