Btw, is Embakasi considered part of eastern Nairobi or south eastern?

i think the pipeline and fedha estate side of embakasi is the eastern and areas around uhuru highway(mlolongo, athi river kitengela etc) are the southern side.

Yes. Thats how most of Nairobi's middle class suburbs look like-rows of identical houses (though most have tiled roofs). We call them estates.

Addis Ababa Ethiopia:

This is mixed middle/lower income (its very mixed up in addis, with wealthier people living side-by-side by the less well off)





random neighbourhood on Addis outskirts (why is it so dense?!) im guessing ethiopians like to live close to one another!







A random house lol. i cant tell if its middle class or super well off...

I think Addis housing is relatively packed due to general lack of space ( Ethipia has 75 mil people ? though land area is huge as well) from what I've seen the less population density a country has the more sprawling ( and car-dependent ) its neighborhoods are.

Btw, I am impressed with Southeast Congo shot posted by BUTEMBO, I never thought there are places in DRCongo that beautiful and well-ordered.
