My girlfriend is from Nairobi Kenya and we have the same problem when viewing there as well. I think it might have something to do with ethnocentrism. Google is a "Western" company and as such, I'm sure it happens without even realizing it, focuses more on Western locations. Also, it could have something to with their clientelle. In other words, since there are more people loging on from the Americas, Europe, and most of the East, then those locations are presented in more detail. If you find out that I'm wrong and can show me how to rectify the situation, please let me know! My girlfriend would loveto show people her home.
