Kikambala Building Update

The pups are growing, but they still like to suckle their mum (who is patient Рfor  while)

We took the matatu to Kikambala to see Joe and witness the progress on his new house. They are rendering the internal walls.

Progress is evident

Surveying the works.

The render is drying over the blockwork.

Most of the windows are now in place.

Teddy was drying maize in the sun.

Joe dropped us at North Coast while he went to bank.

Back at the church, rain was coming so Teddy was now rescuing his maize!

011

The church choir were practising dance routines for their video.

012

We stopped for shopping on the way back and dropped off some yoghurts for Gloria and Shanique. Shanique loves her yoghurt.

013

Back home, we went round to David’s for supper. The house was full, not just with his family, these are 2 neices (twins) from Taveta.

014

Emanuel and his friend Dick.

015

The house cat – actually friendly (and purring!)

Then we enjoyed a great Pilau before walking home under the stars, straight to bed, to awake to learnt that Nelson Mandela had died and Africa is commemorating his life non-stop on TV.

A Relaxing Day in Shanzu

After our trip, this morning was the time to catch up with washing clothes – Tina and Mary came and did most of it, while I was childminder of Shanique.

Later, David and Eunice came round with baby Tina, and Meld got to hold her.

Then with Jacob and John (brother of Nick, Ed and Tina) we took a matatu to Chalets beach. The monkeys watched us as we walked down the track.

After a long swim, we relaxed with some of Jacobs neighbours from Majaoni.(and a drink!)
