Nairobi, Kenya's capital, is a rambling, traffic-choked metropolis, bursting at the seams with people striving to earn a living on its mean streets. While Nairobi has every appearance of a fast-growing, modern African city with the mushrooming skyscrapers and superhighways, the city possesses a dark underbelly. Dog Meat Samosa delves into the bowels of Nairobi's crowded urban backstreets to paint a gritty picture of its underworld, to describe the human experience within this once glorious "City in the Sun" that has since metamorphosed into a cutthroat hustlers' paradise.
