Nairobi, Kenya, is not far from the equator. We lived there for five years. Since the elevation is close to a mile high, the climate is ideal — about 70 degrees (21c) year-around. But since the climate allows for many people to live in very easily-built and relatively inexpensive homes (mud walls and a tin roof), lots of people live there. Too many, in my humble opinion. The city’s infrastructure was built for about 300,000 — and roughly 4 million live there now.
Living further north or south necessitates having solid insulated homes.
Back to seasons — I love four seasons. Spring is now fully here. The warm weather is such a relief after a long cold winter.
Change is a good thing.
