As I was unable to be hiking yesterday, I went to the local secondary school and helped plant 400 trees on the school compound with the environmental club. Barclay's Bank worldwide sent 30 representatives as part of their international "Make a Difference Day". They had presenters talk about careers, motivation and of course HIV/Aids. I met with representatives of the Green Belt Movement here and best of all I made 2 new friends - Edna and Grace. Two Form 2 students. We talked about their hopes and dreams and how they might achieve them. There were over 200 students present for this event and it was great! Hence, the silver lining in these here rain clouds!
I understand snow has come and gone - I hope it is not a sign of long, hard winter for you. But boys and girls, can you say "global warming"? The rains are a month late in coming to Kenya and they are predicting major flooding in many areas. Oh well, no controversial subjects in this blog.
All in all, life in Nguluni continues to be good and a different adventure every day. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to be here, but miss friends and family terribly.
