  1. Getting accustomed to local way of things takes time and is a process. And while each culture has an energy, flow, and pace of life in general constructive feedback and honest contrast is to be expected. In general there is rivalry among the Africa Diaspora similar to siblings but let’s keep it real, get along, and not obsess on petty things. I like your contrast as far the pace of life goes. My parents are from the Caribbean while I grew up in the states… the pace of life is significantly slower there too.

    Please do increase the frequency of your vids on YouTube as I would like to learn more about Kenya as you visit restaurants, tourist’s attractions, and the workings of local living, commerce and industry. Your insightful vids will no doubt encourage discussion, be informative for Americans contemplating visiting, and perhaps areas of improvement in some areas of society that could be done locally but one can live with. I look forward to your next vid.

  2. Man people like this have sooo much talent and etc., but are so westernized (eurocentric). If we can get these types to be more african-centered and to know who their enemy is it could really help us beat white domination.

  3. For those who do not live or have ever been to the USA. New York and LA are of California is nothing like the rest of the USA. The only people who move to NY now are foreign people or people who want to become an actor. I'm not shitting on NY. I love NY people but never ever would I move there

  4. I think when people are married to someone who’s from the country they relocate to, or people have family in that country, it’s a different story from someone who moves alone or moves to a country with no connections. It’s always interesting to hear different perspectives though and hear about the challenges as well as the positives.

  5. Kenyans (Africans)and time …. is constantly making my blood boil!
    Although I like not being a slave to time, the constant "Kenya time" is making things inefficient, expensive in lost work time and transport because you have to come back another day and – at times – life threatening!
    Take it from a European nurse living on and off in Kenya ….

  6. WHY DONT YOU GIVE OUT THE NUMBERS IF YOU ARE GOING THROUGH ALL THE PAINS OF MAKING THIS VIDEO TITLED " COST OF LIVING". COMPARISON DONT HELP , WE ARE TALKING OF TWO DIFFERENT COUNTRIES AND TWO DIFFERENT CULTURES. A LONG LECTURE AND BABBLE THAT DONT HELP.

  7. Good video. Thnxs for the info! Just wish you’d give us the unfiltered part of the cost of living. The real the raw of exactly what it’s like. Understand it’s uncomfortable for some ppl to share but understand it’s really important for viewers who are doing research, would like to know what’s it’s really like rather than judge off of estimates from google, can’t move anywhere with no idea of how much it cost!

  8. Everything you experienced we did too. My parents jobs moved us around a ton as kids and such a culture shock especially hired labour, even though we are kenyan and are considered expats, we had just lived in Europe for such a long time. Everytime I come to nairobi I'm always comparing London prices.
