We are living at the Ngateu guest house - toilet outside, but nearby, water in basins, gas cook top, refrigerator, 2 bedrooms - one with elec. for Marilyn's a-pap, students singing in the morning, no barking dogs, lots of visitors, including little Novathe who has the BEST giggle, Elieshi and NEW BABY. We are doing well!
Marilyn makes great breakfasts - and we had the best ever mango today from elizabeth.
We nearly got locked inside the house 2 nights ago - key would not come out of the lock. Windows have screens and bars. No way out, but the door. Luckily Baraka ( did I mention that we love him) heard us and came- handed the other key through the screen and after some maneuvering, he got the key out and door open. We were happy. :-) He said some "incompetent fundi" ( worker) had put some paper in the lock. So, we are good to go now!
We've had many meetings and usually long ones. But they've been productive. We keep learning more that we need to do.
So- we sleep well, we love our students and our teachers and our other friends and are amazed at the maturity of the post=secondary kids! Rain and mud and barking dogs and hornbills are a blip on the screen.
