Happy New Year!
Yesterday, I got some amazing noodles at Canton Snacks. (They open as early as 8am in the morning so you can eat noodles all day!)
Today I hit up Two Rivers Mall for their Lunar New Year event. It was delightfully cheesy and reminded me a lot of the cultural festivals in the Midwestern United States! They had stations for learning calligraphy, learning chopsticks, trying on historical costumes, etc. Everyone looked like they had a great time.
At the Chinese knot station, I had trouble assembling the knots and a friendly Kenyan helped me out. I was really impressed ’cause he spoke amazing Chinese!
I didn’t expect Nairobi to host any kind of Lunar New Year events so this was a charming surprise my first weekend back in Kenya.
