Before we got up, we’d heard birds squawking in the trees, and Meld spotted the green parrots.
Lucy’s uncle brought his children Margaret and Titus to visit.
Accompanied by Agostino, Meld and I drove to John Mulwa’s home, which proved to be a long way out from the village on a very rough road. We met his grandmother, cousins and niece.
They liked to try on my hat.
Setting out to return to Mivumoni
John’s neighbours are building a house by the road.
Back at Lucy’s we sat and chatted
After lunch, with the car loaded, we waited for Mike to return from work so that we could get some group photos (although Japhet was out with the cattle)
And so we set off, heavily laden. The blue water lilies near Milalani were stunning.
The journey proved quite easy, apart from Mombasa traffic.
Back home we had a few challenges – the gas ran out so we had to move to the charcoal jiko, and big debates with the owner of the car who wants the car back and said “come to the office tomorrow for your money for the tyre and fine” to which he got a resounding “you don’t get your car until we see the money”.
