Nairobi Polo Game

On the last day of my last trip to Kenya, I went to watch a polo game. I knew nothing about polo and was excited for the novelty.

The spectators adorned clothes reminiscent of what someone attending the Kentucky Derby might wear (minus the hats). While people dress in all sorts of fancy attire in Nairobi, I had not yet seen that particular style. It was a neat fashion fusion.

As for the game itself, I still had no idea how it was played but clutched my chest whenever the horses and their riders came close to colliding.

It was delightful diversion before a grueling flight back to North America.
