Hello family!

I am currently sitting at the Covenant Guest House in the outskirts of Nairobi. It is a quaint little place. I have a room to myself, with a mosquitto net, toilet and shower! I’m not sure if it gets better than that.

Anyway, yesterday was a big day, I went out and exchanged some money to Kenyan Dipsies, and got myself a SIM card…then..THEN..I went to the Nairobi City Park (aptly called The Monkey Park), where I fed peanuts to lots of very cute monkeys, except for the one that stole a bag of peanuts…you better believe that one got no special attention after that, greedy bugger. These monkeys are like the squirrels we used to feed in Kew Gardens, they come right up to you and sit on your shoulder…I like to call it the happiest place on earth. Peter, the man that was taking me around, was very friendly and I only had to pay him 15$ for a whole day’s excursion!

When I got home last night, there was no power…so I helped Regina the girl who works here make dinner by candle light. It was very romantic. We are BFFs now, in case you were wondering. I made rice, and a bunch of sauteed veggies…she was very impressed with my cooking skills, I told her I was trained at the Cordon Bleu…the joke was lost on her.
I woke up this morning at 5AM with a migraine, not a great way to start the day. I took a bunch of pills and slept most of the day until Regina knocked on my door and asked if I was going to ‘take breakfast’…I said sure…even though it was 230. She had made an egg for me in the morning anticipating I would be up. While she was heating up my breakfast I sat in the dining room listening to a rousing rendition of “Satan, You Lose” on “The Christian Music Revival Station”…I have a full arsenal of christian folk songs to take with me on the road now.

I am being picked up later by the guy who drove me from the airport…I’m not really sure why, but my hopes are that he wants to show me around and not sell me into white(ish) slave labour..more on that later.

I think that’s it for now. Love and miss you all.
