    To Eldoret

    July 3, 2017 in Kenya ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    An early morning visit to a local farm where we felt like we were back in the English countryside, barns, tractors, black and white cows... They had friendly dogs and calves too. We are in different cook groups but had to both buy for the next couple of days so a mad rush around the supermarket, some snacks for lunch and we were on our way with a few hours drive. We stopped at road side stalls to buy fresh veg and the local butchers, come tea room for the meat. We crossed the Equator today too. We have been really impressed by the reception we get from the locals, they are smiley and friendly. The children particularly love to wave and smile as we pass them.Read more

    Day 29 - Poa Resort

    May 11, 2017 in Kenya ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Meeting night tonight, so not a lot to do. Tom and Sherry took us on their Bible studies today, a very nice experience. We decided to stop for lunch at Poa Resort. There are these little oases all over the world. You can pay a few dollars and go inside the resort and enjoy the amenities for the day. Or, go the restaurant, buy a meal and enjoy the surroundings for awhile. Here we found pretty gardens and lots of birds to watch - the sunbird especially - a relative to the hummingbird, but it doesn't hover.

    We all ordered a beer and a platter of snacks to share. We were finished our beer, but there were no snacks (fast food doesn't exist here - as we have also learned to be true in Mexico). When we asked, we were told, "Yes, it's coming soon!". About 10 minutes more passed and it arrived - a problem with the fryer we were told. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the food and our 'break' ended up about 2 hours long, but we were all quite happy.

    Home for a couple of hours and then we headed to the 5:30 mid-week meeting. Unlike Sunday, where we went a little overtime and everyone lingered and visited, the meeting was over early and everyone was gone quite quickly. The school children come dressed in their uniforms and many come straight from work or the ministry so they want to get home. Plus, when the meeting was finished it was dark and raining. In the congregation there are two cars and one motor bike, so the majority are traveling on foot.
