Saturday Portrait: Street Vendor, near Mtito Andei, Kenya
Today’s portrait was snapped at a roadside restaurant near the dusty crossroads town of Mtito Andei, Kenya. One-stop shopping for caps, belts and bull whips.
The town lies on the Mombasa-Nairobi road, about 235 kilometers (145mi) southeast of the capital Nairobi. I remember it being rather nondescript and small –citing a 2010 population of under 5,000, Wikipedia agrees— but full of animated people like this man. I liked the black bull whip but bought a belt instead.
