Ah, a fellow Indian then. :)
For a long time, it seemed like I was the only Indian on thelist. We seem
to have added a couple more recently.


So what's the draw of Kenya? Money? Quality of life? From what I've read,
Kenya faces many of the problems India does - corruption, poverty, pathetic
Internet connectivity, high unemployment, etc. So why have so many Indians
moved there? I'm genuinely curious.
