Voi is a large-ish market town just before one of the gates to Tsavo East NP. It's a very lively town and - apparently - quite prosperous, too. We did not have time to spend too long there... just enough time to visit the endless colourful market, and nothing else. Yet it's one of the most impressive markets I have seen in Kenya: all along the main road seems to be a maret, as if there was no other job to do than that of a salesperson. Bizarre, for sure... and I could not help wondering - with so many stalls - how many people actually do some shopping. There seemed to be no proportion.
