The price of Coke is a rough guide to the cost of living in a country. A 10z (300ml) bottle of Coke costs 24.6 US cents locally so $6,324 can buy 25,707 bottles. How much would you need to 25,707 bottles (or cans) of 300ml Coke in Western Europe or North America?

Each of the office has a private fitted bathroom. The suites come ready with plumbing and drainage services necessary to fit any additional sanitary fittings that may be required by the doctors.

In addition the development has 4 large commercial units on the ground floor available for lease.

Not Westlands, maybe Lavington and Spring Valley. The land is Westlands is so expensive (I've seen quotes of KSh 150m an acre) so that's why developers are only putting up flats and offices. You can get some nice old maisonettes though if you're patient.
