Albus Brooks leads a trip to Nairobi, Denver's sister city

Denver has ten sister cities, each with its own customs and priorities. Among them is Nairobi, Kenya.

City Councilman Albus Brooks, so much a fan of Kenya that he named his daughter after the nation, recently led a trip of Manual High School students (and one teacher), plus private sector businessmen and not-for-profit pioneers, to Nairobi courtesy of Engage 8 and Denver Sister Cities.
