Happy New Year, Nairobi: 2016 City fireworks display
Happy New Year guys... I hope your 2016 is going easy so far. What a year 2015 was, ey?
Since it's my first blog post of 2016 I thought it would be great to start with a bang... No... not in reference to the idiom that means "to begin with considerable excitement"... I have to admit that I am pretty excited about this year though...
I'm not one to make resolutions but I would like to shoot more and post more this year... And so I did.. At 12:00am on January first 2016 I was up and ready (Not really) to start the year on a high note.
The event of the year was happening in the middle of the city and it was Totally Sold Out. It's a gospel event held by Kubamba Crew that happens every year to cross over from December 31st... With it comes the biggest fireworks display in the city.
By 11:00pm I was set and ready with a few friends, waiting for the countdown (Which I missed). They really went big from the start with all types of fireworks designs (From birds, to disco balls to the usual palm tree design)
Here are a few of my favorites from the show. I obviously had to remain in the same spot not to miss a beat but I rather enjoyed the show.
Enjoy. As always, feel free to comment below with your thoughts. Happy New Year.
