Soooo no one warned us that having names such as “Lauren” and “Lyndsay” would be such a huge party-foul here in Kenya. Weeks into our trip, we both gave up trying to correct everyone… thus surrendering to “Nancy” (Lyndsay) and “Maureen” (Lauren) . Haha!
We’re wrapping up our final week in Kenya and it’s time for more pics. We’ve packed a TON of stuff into the final week. Over the weekend we grabbed brunch at Java (the local Mizungu hang), visited the Yia Yia Market, and strolled through Nairobi City Center. A few pics…
Monday morning it was back to work and we took the day to visit the Jamii School and Brosis, another school in a neighboring slum. Lynds and I were back at our project, Siloam Academy, for Tuesday and today (Wed) which was our last day at that site. We made LEAPS of progress with the kids we were tutoring and part of me wishes we were here just a bit longer to catch them up to speed with the rest of their class. As much as I’m going to miss these Kenyan kiddos, I will NOT miss my morning garbage stroll through the mud paths and having to hop unidentified slush puddles.
I realized that I haven’t posted any pics of Kibera slum, so here’s a visual:
Stay tuned for a final update tomorrow…. thanks for the prayers and encouragement from back home!
