We are in Kenya! We are thankful for a great trip up here. Hence no updates for a bit….it all started 3 days ago with a boat trip (and no one puked! Thanks to ridiculous amount of Dramamine. Woohoo!)
2 full days of driving. over 1,000km covered. and that is African roads so I think that makes it seem like at least double that. the dusty winding road was long but the sights are breathtaking.
The girls did pretty great and although there were admittedly a few moments I entertained the thought of strapping them to the roof rack (I resisted) we made it work…. think lots of “I spy,” snacks, rhyming games, singing, and even some naps.
Only a few stops to get gas, pee, border paperwork, and a local place to eat which officially became THE WORST chipis and mishkaki (fries & beef kabobs….errr we think it was beef) we have ever had in Africa.
spent the night enjoying the cool weather of Arusha…blankets needed people!!!
my favorite…shaking the car to get more gas in….I am sure that is not safe but they do it everywhere here.
finally we made it to Nairobi…….first stop Java House for some wireless Internet, iced mochas, and a play ground…..the land of plenty y’all!
Now we are outside the city enjoying the higher elevation and thus cool weather and waiting for our conference to begin. Anni asked me this morning while I was putting on some pants “Mama, why you are dressing like a boy?” Yep, it has been a while since we have been off the island and we are lovin’ every minute of the chance to have some rest, family time, and enjoy the different.
