The 11th WorldWide Instameet – Nairobi edition

In the darkest of the night, a ‘Instameet bat-signal’ appeared on our timelines, and we responded to the call with gusto and caffeine. Sunday, 22nd March 2015, we went for our first early morning (very early morning) instameet. Shutterbugs within Nairobi met up from 5:30am (not kidding) on Kenyatta Avenue to capture the city’s stills as the first light of day hit.

Thank God for coffee!!!

This event was part of the 11th World Wide Instameet (Instagram Meet Up), locally organised by @igersnairobi and @igkenya.

What is an Instameet?

An instameet is a gathering of active members on Instagram within a certain location, with the intention of getting to know their fellow followers/following better. This, of course, leads to taking pictures together and of each other to showcase comrodary and mutual appreciation of the location they hail from.

Most instameets have a theme behind them to drive the direction of the photos. For example, Sunday’s theme was #NairobiAtDawn — pictures of Nairobi’s sunrise in the city centre.
