London is awesome.
Even sick. I sampled the United Kingdom’s very best over-the-counter drugs.
It could have been worse. I was the kind of sick you work through, not sick in bed. When I wasn’t working, I snapped a few photos.
I had planned to hammer out several kick-ass blog posts (or, at the very least, play catch-up) on the long flight. Alas, my flight doesn’t have wifi.
Can you imagine? In this day and age?!
While I’m up in the air, please enjoy these posts you may have missed and some new reads too.
During our last day in Kenya, we visited our host Mercy’s sister Rose’s home in Nairobi. Rose organized a lovely luncheon for our gang and invited some of her friends to join so we could get acquainted with some non-Maasai Kenyans.
While I was at Rose’s house, I transferred some items between my backpack and my suitcase, apparently losing a precious shopping bag full of jewelry bought at Kazuri Beads, a store run as part of a women’s empowerment project. I was crushed when I got home and realized my purchases hadn’t made the trip with me.
Fortunately Rose found the bag and kindly shipped the jewelry to me via DHL.
I will never think of the phrase “Sweet Spot” the same way again. Pervert.
If you’re in the U.S. or Canada and would like to check out Kazuri, here’s the link to their North American site.
You may have read this list elsewhere. However, this is an edited version with new! exciting! items. OK?
Some things are hard to explain to Kenyan teenagers.
Last night, I didn’t have to use a flashlight when I got out of bed to go to the bathroom.
I didn’t need a hot water bottle to keep me warm as I slept.
I wasn’t greeted by several hundred children singing WELCOME OUR VISITORS! without having consumed an iced latte.
