I’ve never been real keen on the idea of Halloween….except that I love the whole costume and candy part.
Around the first part of October, we received an email from the Embassy warden, who is basically an American in our area of Kenya assigned to keep other ex-pat Americans up-to-speed on security announcements and other general information.
This was a different kind of announcement though! A flyer about a community picnic/trick-or-treat party put on by the American Chamber of Commerce. I have been excited about the prospect of a costume party since hearing about it.
We got the kids all costumed up, Eli a lady bug and Lucy a fairy. Not bad for Africa:
