TAKE A RIDE THROUGH THE SKATE PARK

One of the untapped communities by locals is the expansive skate scene. The community all began from a failed project by the UN which called for better streets to be build even though there were only a few cars in the slums they were targeting. The better roads lead to and increase of roller blades and skaters, rather than an increase in motor vehicles. Make sure to head down to Shangilia Skate Park to see what amazing tricks these guys and gals have mastered.

You can even try your hand and strap on some rollerblades to get the authentic experience.

VISIT A CHURCH BUILT BY ITALIAN PRISONERS OF WAR

Any Kenyan living in, or out of Nairobi should make the journey to see this preserved piece of history. When talking with a old caretaker during my recent visit he said that he was volunteering to take care of the church since it had been forgotten about, in exchange he listens to the sermons every day. The caretake also claimed that the spirits of long deceased prisoners buried behind the church still come around to spook guards and visitors, but that’ you’ll just have to see for yourself.

This compact church that connects Nairobi to Nakuru has been put through the the test of time. Today, people from all faiths call to this church to pay homage to the Italian Prisoners who originally built the structure.

During the second World War, colonizers relocated Italian prisoners of war to the Rift Valley area and allowed them to build a small Catholic Church. The interior walls are scrawled with ancient latin translating to,

Come to me my people, this is the victory that has won the world by our faith. Blessed be the sky and blessed again, everything will germinate in the sky and also on the earth” – Translated by  Source EA Standard
