Day: December 30, 2014
After a good sleep, we were up surprisingly early, and Bridget loved all the animals around the place (the cattle get taken out after breakfast).
One of several cats.
The two puppies.
Mike took us on a tour of the shamba.
Blixa – used as a dye and for make up.
The famous mivuma trees that give the village its name.
I picked my first coconut (I was the only one tall enough to reach it)
Testing the pump at the new well near Lucy’s shamba; sadly it needs to be deepened as the water has dried up already.
Bridget spotted someone’s bathroom as we walked to the spring where they still fetch water from.
Ndunge and her son Mike and one of granny’s teddies.
Bridget tastes her first madafu.
Bridget is dressed properly by her sister Lucy.
John gave the puppies a bath.
Lucy took us on walk round the village.
The catholic church
Bridget was loving the flowers as well as the animals.
The secondary school where most of our young friends were educated.
inside one of the classrooms – we hoped order would be restored before term starts next week.
The staff room, with its inspirational mottos.
More passion flowers.
At Maggy’s Bridget found more friends.
Leaving Maggy’s we met Mike and went for a Tusker, letting Lucy go home to help with the cooking. Another feast awaited us.
