I have been blogging for a year today. I can’t believe it. I remember when I first started, I didn’t know anything about blogging, and now, I still know very little. Blogging was something I had been wanting to do for a while, and during my Jan term break, I decided to give it a shot. There were times when I would blog consistently, and other times when I would be MIA, but in all, God has been faithful. Thank you to all my readers because your support gave me the courage to continue. For all those looking to start something new this year without knowing how, get your laptop out now and google it. Rome wasn’t built in a day, but it had to have started someday. Put the doubts aside and take the first step, believe me the rest will come as well. Read more
Just like last weekend, this weekend held lots of promises and it didn’t disappoint.We packed our bags on Thursday night in preparation for our four-day safari. I didn’t know what to expect. The only safari I had ever been on was at Disney World in Florida and in my book that don’t count. Out of everything on this trip, this was the part were I was entirely clueless. Read more
It’s our second week here, and I am definitely sleeping better. I still take uncontrollable naps in the afternoons but that can’t be jet lag anymore. Last weekend was packed, so compared to that, this week was very chill. As usual, I will give a breakdown of days’ events and what I loved and learnt from them. Read up on my weekend here Read more
So part 1 ended at my adventures on Friday, so this post encompasses my first weekend here. Because our weekdays are filled with lots of work, our professor put in a lot of tourism into our weekend. It was fun to do because we got to see parts and works in Kenya that wasn’t limited to what our specific NGOs or Daraja were doing. Read more
My people, how far? After traveling for 21 hours on the plane, 7 hours on a bus, and 3 days in general, I am relieved to let you all know that I am here. I am a frequent traveller, but I can tell you that this is the loooongest trip I have ever taken in my life. When we got to our destination, I did not feel like a human being at all. Let me take you back to the beginning of it all.
I Am From
I am from Chris and Clara, Mabel and Akudu.
From the wombs of the South-East.
From flat lands and steep hills.
I am from yam eaters, cassava eaters, rice eaters.
I am from sarcasm, honesty and humor.
I am from ‘put it on my head,’ ‘get the remote,’ and ‘do they have two heads.
I am from rice every Sunday after church, and village for Christmas.
I am from breasts that nestled six, and arms that embraced all.
