Hello I'm moving to Nairobi as a kept man and I have read horror stories about cars being expensive in Kenya is this still true and if so is it smarter/ cheaper to bring our car with us (import)? The other issue I have (as my girlfriend has a job there and we have no children) what do I do all day, everyday, I normally work as a map maker (GIS), but again everything I've read says its very difficult (almost impossible) to find work once in Kenya and then get a visa, as all the international companies and organisations recruit from outside Kenya. Any thoughts gratefully received Cheers Matt
