Out and about

The weekend’s here. I’m so happy and well rested I could read three books and listen to some Sauti Sol.

So, I have been on the road daily since Monday.

It’s great traversing Siaya County and talking to farmers about their expertise and food security. I had fish stew at some hotel “Furaha Hotel” on Monday night and my stomach rumbled for two straight days!

I had to wade through mud to get to a school called Malunga and this three year old kid kept staring at my gumboots before stating that he never knew boots could be green in color.

I really miss home food and being on the road has exposed me to different kinds of people. I am learning that:

  1. It’s good to say hello to people.
  2. Farmers are the most hardworking people and they don’t even know it. I have been calculating how many days they spend on the farm from land preparation to harvest.
  3. Sweet potatoes and black tea is the best meal ever.
  4. The best way to heat your feet is to wear gumboots the whole day.
  5. Not everyone is pro-teamwork.
  6. I love four-wheel drive trucks.

Have a great weekend y’all.
