Arrived Nairobi on my second last Country on this trip. In Nairobi visited the Karen Blixen museum. Karen wrote " Out of Africa" so very interesting. My trip to the Post office was eventful. I found the Philatelic section. I selected a selection from the December issue of 50 years of independence. However any stamps purchased at this section are plus 16%vat. If purchased at the stamp counter no vat ! I have not had this before. But the stamps were only available at the philatelic section so I bought them there.
Coming out of the main building. I took some photos of the Post Office and was detained and nearly arrested by the police !! I had to explain in detail why anyone would want a photo of a Post office. I had to delete the pics. This one I took earlier.
