Nostalgia!!! Photos that show amazing Kenya through the years

Kenya is one of the most beautiful countries in Africa with wonderful people, climate (let’s ignore the devastating droughts we have been having the last couple of years) and great food (huh?).

The country has gone through evolution from independence and the evidence is seen clearly in picture format, from old soda bottles to the old currency notes to Catherine Kasavuli the veteran newscaster who thrilled many Kenyans in her heyday in the 90’s.

Some enterprising Kenyan(s) who I don’t know and can only thank took the time to compile a list of photos showing the Kenya of old, that show a simpler time.

Check out the images below and feel the nostalgia for a Kenya you might have not seen or even had the pleasure to witness;
