    good question- i went there two summers ago with my family...Founded in 1899, it became the seat of government for British East Africa in 1905 and capital of independent Kenya in 1963. Population: 2,500,000. In terms of development, it does have the appearance of a medium-sized metropolitan city but it surrounded by outlying shanty towns and rural villages. Depending on who you ask, government stability is much more secure than other Eastern African countries. According to the U.S. embassy, it is one of the safest places to visit in Africa, so as long as you use common sense, you should have an enlightening and enjoyable trip.
