Security Check

There are a few ground rules in Nairobi. You rarely go out at night. Lock your car doors and keep your windows up in traffic. Guard dogs, panic buttons, panic rooms, barbed wire and electric fences are as common a feature in houses as an inground swimming pool. It kind of freaks you out the first time you see all of this, but like anything else – you adapt and get used to it. The thing is, most peope are great all over Kenya. Crime is just like terrorism in that way, the actions of a few have dire consequences for the majority. I was thinking this as my carry-on Samsonite was tested for explosives in Frankfurt. I mention all of this because security is one of the major issues filming in Kibera, and I am in meetings this week to resolve them.
