  • Last full weekWell, I told Geoff he had to carry the conversational ball with Edward. He was 40 minutes late and conversation was the least of our worries because he was so delighted with the fast internet that his face was Posted by madrona38 in Kenya and beyond 2011 | Feb 15, 2017
  • Nakuru to ItenWe left the Kivu Resort after a good look around. There was a lovely kiddies playground and a fabulous pool area. Unfortunately we had no time for a swim. Even though we don't travel long distances, the roads and the Posted by Tulip1945 in Around Lake Victoria | Feb 14, 2017
  • From Jungle Junction to NakuruSo, Saturday morning we got ready to leave Jungle Junction. First had a leisurely breakfast with Steph and Richard, collected our washing and then packed up the van. Filled up with water and got rid of the waste water: “just Posted by Tulip1945 in Around Lake Victoria | Feb 14, 2017
  • Another Aberdare weekendWe are back at the Aberdare Country Club. We suspected we were upgraded last time and we were. The room, the bed and the bathroom were twice as big but this smaller place is fine although the shower Posted by madrona38 in Kenya and beyond 2011 | Feb 12, 2017
  • not started yetFor me the tour has not started. Shin left Nairobi 2 weeks ago and is now in Seoul. Wednesday I will fly to Bangkok and we will meet there on Thursday. On Friday we will celebrate my 65th birthday. That Posted by jefvincent in not the end of the road | Feb 11, 2017
  • Week ?We might think we know what the day will bring but mostly we are wrong. Today I was taking my time since I didn’t have an 8 AM class so I sent a text to Justin telling him I Posted by madrona38 in Kenya and beyond 2011 | Feb 10, 2017
  • Jungle junctionThis will be our last day in Jungle Junction. Padraig has more or less done the jobs he wanted to do on the van, and I made a dent in my embroidery and am halfway through one of my books Posted by Tulip1945 in Around Lake Victoria | Feb 10, 2017
  • NairobiAfter two very uneventful and pleasant flights on Ethiopian Airways we arrived in Nairobi at 11 o'clock on the 7th of February. We were greeted by taxi driver Samuel (I think), bright sunshine and 27 degrees and headed straight Posted by Tulip1945 in Around Lake Victoria | Feb 8, 2017
  • The futureThis next entry is tough for me because it means that I have no idea of the future here or what will happen to the 2 libraries. So many of you have given me money for books or supported Posted by madrona38 in Kenya and beyond 2011 | Feb 6, 2017
  • More of week 4I was talking to a standard 3 class about how to choose a book and was reading bits from various books when the heavens opened and the drumming on the roof was so loud, I had to give up. Posted by madrona38 in Kenya and beyond 2011 | Feb 6, 2017
  • Bits and PiecesThese ramblings seem trivial in the face of what is happening at home. I only hope that they are providing a respite. After the election, a friend took to posting on Facebook all the good parts of her Posted by madrona38 in Kenya and beyond 2011 | Jan 31, 2017
  • Week 4Before we left the lodge a wild, pouring storm came through. I was sitting on the verandah of the bar that had the best panoramic view and had to rapidly retreat. I went back to our room where Posted by madrona38 in Kenya and beyond 2011 | Jan 31, 2017
  • Mountain Lodge Chaotic day. Apparently the scouts were doing something special so only half of any class showed up. I was going to start reading Harry Potter to one class but wasn’t about to do that when so many were Posted by madrona38 in Kenya and beyond 2011 | Jan 28, 2017
  • ContinuationToday we went to have tea with a woman we have known since 2004. Bekki taught here for many years and then became head teacher. She finally had had enough and quit to teach art part time. Posted by madrona38 in Kenya and beyond 2011 | Jan 26, 2017
  • Third weekAlexander and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day…… That is an exaggeration but the day definitely didn’t go as planned. I needed to get into the library early to figure out what I was going to do Posted by madrona38 in Kenya and beyond 2011 | Jan 26, 2017
  • Third weekendWe are at Sandai for the weekend. I first came here in 2008 with Lynn, a friend who had come from the States with me. We both considered it paradise but when I brought Geoff here several years Posted by madrona38 in Kenya and beyond 2011 | Jan 22, 2017
  • This and thatSuch a lovely evening. It feels as if we are settled in. We ate cheese and crackers (having finally found salty crackers) and heavenly mango. Beiju fed us lunch so simple was better. We ate by Posted by madrona38 in Kenya and beyond 2011 | Jan 22, 2017
  • Week 2Out at 7AM washing my underwear under a cold outdoor tap. It is not right to give such items to Edith. We are both exhausted from teaching so many classes but it is wonderful. The children are the way Posted by madrona38 in Kenya and beyond 2011 | Jan 17, 2017
  • First weekendWe have been to this place before but it was not so up market. Our room and bathroom are twice as big as our cottage and the shower is glorious. The Aberdare CC used to be a private Posted by madrona38 in Kenya and beyond 2011 | Jan 14, 2017
  • FridayYesterday Edith came into our lives. Once a week she will clean our small place and wash our clothes. She gave us a long list of requirements. She turned up her nose at our clothes powder. Posted by madrona38 in Kenya and beyond 2011 | Jan 14, 2017
  • 3rd DayI don’t even know where to start but the best part is that we have both plunged into teaching and now remember why we love it here. The children are a delight and so responsive. Trying to match Posted by madrona38 in Kenya and beyond 2011 | Jan 11, 2017
  • Second day Geoff cooked a lovely hamburger, yogurt, spinach, etc dish and then we watched “My Family and Other Animals” which a friend had downloaded on a flash drive. It doesn’t resemble the book much but was still fun so here Posted by madrona38 in Kenya and beyond 2011 | Jan 10, 2017
  • Days of flyingEllen got us and way to much luggage to the airport and getting to London was uneventful. Not so the next leg. We woke at 4:30 and decided we might as well get going. Thank goodness. Posted by madrona38 in Kenya and beyond 2011 | Jan 3, 2017
  • So...Kisumu Alright folks, now off the tourist grid a bit. One of the benefits of being able to travel for an extended amount of time is the ability to take side trips. To hole up and see what you can see Posted by sbinnell in Words and Things about Stuff and Places | Dec 29, 2016
  • Yet againWell, we leave in less than a week. I am fighting a cold with magic herbs, boxes and suitcases full of books and supplies are all over the house, and anyone who walks in has to walk out with Posted by madrona38 in Kenya and beyond 2011 | Dec 27, 2016
