For 20 days we had a cultural orientation for new people who came to live in East Africa. While Kevin ran the program for the adults I got to watch the kids. This time there were just two and they were 3 and under. There are two phases to this program. There is an urban portion and then a rural portion. So while in Nairobi we (me and a friend) took the kids to the elephant orphange and the giraffe park. It was lots of fun!
We were very close to the giraffe. We could touch and feed them.
I had a pellet of their food between my lips and they came and got it!
Pretty gross, I know! But pretty cool too!
The second portion of the training was on the coast. It was very hot but thankfully, we were just a few blocks from the ocean. Several afternoons after the program was over Kevin and I would walk to the beach. There always was a breeze which we enjoyed!
We would get a drink and enjoy the view for a few min!
Here are a couple of pics that a friend of mine took as they were out doing their cultural learning.
Sometimes you just draw things out in the sand because you can. ha!
A friend of mine learning to weave a mat.
One night while we were out to eat this dog had climbed up on the car and just sat on top for a long time. I had never seen such a thing!
At the end of the program Kevin took me out to a restaurant which was in a cave. It was so cool!
It even had an opening in it where you could look up and see the stars.
The food was excellent!
Each day, I would take a tuktuk to watch the kids at their house. This was a different mode of transportation for me.
Me and Kevin in a tuktuk. At least it was breezy for a few min.
Love these eyes looking across at me especially when it involves a milkshake!
