Siku hizi- these days

Kidegi has been our teacher for this week and last week. He has been traveling with us to Massai villages. He is really nice to have along as he speaks Kimassai, Kiswahili and English fluently. He is a teacher of both language and culture.

For offering people brought six goats a cow and several chickens. Note that this picture was taken inside church. It was quite the crazy, messy situation for a while. Pr H had to close the service in prayer over the noise of the animals and the people trying to control them. It is a good thing they do offering at the end of the service

Massai women carry their children on their backs, tying them on with a katengi

This little guy was famous for swallowing a nail last week. He is quite the ham and a bundle of trouble.

They caught on pretty quickly.

I am coming down with a petty bad cold, but with rest and liquids i should be healthy again soon.

  1. Thanks for the spelling of petrichor. Now along with cotoyant I know the meaning of two new words, however, I’m not sure I can use them in a sentence. What an excellent shot of your teacher, lighting, window and expression. And you’ve just introduced the Frisbee…that must provide lots of fun. Great pix. g/g/B of FC

  3. How about a 3rd comment since I hit submit twice and now a third time to say that I spelled chatoyant wrong and to admit the two strikes on the first comment. g/g/B of FC

  4. It looks like you have made good use of the bubbles. It is bitterly cold today… 17 degrees with a north wind. It will be a shocker for you to come back to. The pictures are wonderful, the goat offering cannot be concealed in an envelope. Hope you can rest up with your cold… dad and I have one too.
    Love, Mom and Dad
