Rain most of yesterday.
No water again today.
Clive, the water/solar guy is coming today and I'll have Grace and Robert ( headmistress and most wonderful guard) meet with us.
Teacher, staff meeting today. Need to clarify what Safi is and what we can and can't do - some misinformation floating around, evidently.
Conversations with all the Form 2, 3 and 4 students completed. Some even asked questions of me. They all want school bags - but ones that are like backpacks. All gave us information as to what parts of the school uniform they needed - Baraka is going to check with each student to see what he sees as essential. ( Once again, he is invaluable to us.)
School board meeting tomorrow morning. Diocese representatives are supposed to come.
Elizabeth will move us to Freedom Lodge after the meeting, then a trip to Shaanga ( workshop, store with work done by people with disabilities.), then Marilyn and I are invited to Alex's for dinner - with Baraka. Alex is French and teaching at the International School - and quite a delight.
We will be happy to have reliable water again. ( altho we should have here also).
And, we will be happy to have someone else make us food.
And, we will be happy to just play for a few days.
Yesterday Pendo, Jen and her friends' student, went with us to get vegetables at the corner "markets" - women with their fruits and vegetables on tables or on the ground. She was able to get the local prices. We asked her if we could buy her some vegetables for her hostel, but all she needed was cooking oil. So, we got that. She is a delight - as are all of these kids.
Dinner last night was leftover fries that we toasted in the fry pay and a vegetable stir fry of tomatoes, green pepper , onion and some new item that Pendo told us was very good - and it was.
Haven't read one page of my book yet - living takes a lot of time here :-)
