The vendors are very welcoming. Just at the entrance I bought sunglasses that I had not even planned on buying because of how friendly the guy was. We were 3 of us and he sold 3 quality sunglasses to us for 20€, on a normal day one would go for 26€
I was surprised to also find women wearing derras, they are however Muslim women from the neighbouring island Mayotte – interesting because I went to a Muslim-owned grocery store and they thought I was one of them because I had my dera on. Dera is a free laid back dress – just one of those must have outfits, most ladies in Kenya have them.
