Until later

Tea Time

I’ve been hearing about the Kiambethu Farm http://www.kiambethufarm.co.ke/ for quite some time.   I have never really known what to expect, but I knew the minute that our friends Rhett and Erika confirmed that they were coming to Kenya, that we would have to go. A kid free, adult outing.  Exciting. Kiambethu Farm is located in Limuru, [...]

Passing time

I bet it’s hard to imagine living somewhere where it is pretty much the same kind of weather year round.  I had a hard time imagining it when I lived in Portland. Because it is  generally between 70-80 degrees year round here in Kenya give or take 10 degrees in their summer and winter, we [...]

Did you know?

That there could be a show made just for me called, “So You Just Can’t Dance?” I gave up in college, after trying country swing dancing.  In high school, I had to be the dance team manager.  I couldn’t count time.  Still really can’t.   I have trouble finding the beat.  It really is a sad [...]
