Mombasa is a relatively more relaxed city than Nairobi. Funny enough, it still has very similar structures as it did 40-60 years ago, but not everything is the same. From the people to the cars to the quality of the picture, you can see a notable difference between then and now that’ll make you appreciate the  city throughout the years.

Here are pictures of Mombasa back in the 60’s that’ll take you back:
