ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " D "
Today is ABC Wednesday and the letter is D. " D " is for Dust. The Rift Valley of Kenya is so dusty due to the drought. No matter where we went we were eating dust. This picture was taken from our van as we went down into the Valley.
Enlarging each picture will give you more detail.
The area called Namuncha, Kenya has miles of red Dirt and is Dappled with volcanic rocks.
Because of the dust and dirt, many of the children get extremely disheveled and dirty. A bath from a small basin in the morning just doesn't last all day. I think Moms fight a loosing battle every day with their kids and their clothes.
Dinner is prepared over the open fire. Here Eunice fries chapatti. This was like a tortilla and had a wonderful flavor. She fixed them for our dinner almost every night. I would love to have some right now. Very yummy.
