Don't lament the past nor be anxious about the future, simply rejoice in the moments of your life. It takes much courage to see the beauty and joy in the seemingly mundane here and now.

This is especially for my 11 year old nephews whom I'm sure can find something amusing here! The stall on left is my "toilet". It's basically a hole in cement (in india they called it a squattx potty). Being the near OCD that I am about clean bathrooms, mine is very clean ( I use bleach and detergent in the flush water). Some kenyans say you either have to go short call or long call. I have also added just for my own amusement what I call Zach call which is a short call (pee) but it goes on and on! You nephews get why it's called zach! A zach call is sometimes good because it also helps flush - sorry for that...just "keeping it real". Of course the other stall is my "bath-shower" which is not too bad, I just wish I didn't have to walk outside to get to it. I can't walk out there in a towel so it's a little annoying to have to go wearing something and put it back on before I walk back to room. I'M hoping to convince the landlord to build a temp fence of sorts that would allow me to walk back and forth "unseen". That's all for now.
Being who I am, this will of course be a streamlined site mainly to provide updates during my time in Kenya. For those of you who know me that means a minimal "bells & whistles" (no thrills) webpage. However, I hope to provide interesting writings to illustrate in the best way possible my service in the Peace Corps.
