KENYA ANNIVERSARY - IT'S BEEN 5 YEARS
Today marks 5 years since we went to Namuncha, Kenya.
We truly miss the place and especially the beautiful Maasai people.
I just need to share some of the photo memories with all of you.
Many of them you perhaps saw before
but they are fun to share again.
The Maasai girls danced and sang for us as well as some of the mothers.
There is just something about their voices that gives me chills.
The first photo shows our sleeping quarters out in the Bush.
The other 2 are where we lived in The Great Rift Valley.
As you can see, not too much grows there and everyone in East Africa is experiencing a severe drought.
Living conditions are not easy.
Eunice baked over an open fire.
The chapatti (bread) was so tasty. We had it for dinner each evening.
I really enjoyed working along-side the Maasai women as we sifted gravel for the mud cement.
The cement was going on the walls of the community building.
The first photo of this series is Mary.
She was so shy but spoke very proper English.
She reached out and touched my hair and said it was soft.
It took a lot for her to do that and it just made me love her more.
Hiking on the rocky, thistley soil was a challenge for us tender footed people.
Note the little guy walking with us...no shoes.
Hubby and myself with Maasai friends and team mates.
The Elder Solomon looking at my digital pictures.
This is my favorite photo of Solomon.
His sweet smile just warms my heart.
Someday I really hope to see him again.
