"Then there is the Nairobian state of mind, which veers between vitality and fatalism. Last year, I played in a poker tournament in the Westgate casino. At three in the morning, I wandered out past the deserted food court where many were shot dead on Saturday. On the upper parking deck, where the gunmen would enter the building this weekend, there was just a Kenyan-Indian, a Chinese gambler, and a security guard. I had that morbid moment which many Nairobians who move across the city at night experience, feeling alive but wondering if I would die on the way home. I drew in the cool air, glanced at the stars, and set off on a wild drive—wild with potholes, drunk drivers, thugs, even hyenas. I have never been driven off the road by carjackers as other Nairobians have, but if it did happen there would be recognition: Ah, it is this moment, the one that I have been fearing. This is the collective feeling of Nairobians towards the Westgate attack. It is crushing, but it is not a surprise."
