Before I introduce the ladies of Kimwarer Valley, I would like to pass on Grant's heartfelt thanks for all the kind comments and birthday wishes yesterday. In the two-and-a-half years that I've written my blog, he's never read it. Last night I showed him his birthday post; he enjoyed it very much and was touched by the many comments.

On Tuesday evening, the company MD and his wife returned from their leave in South Africa. The HOD's and spouses were invited to a dinner at the guest house. It was super meeting the ladies from the mine, Caroline, Karen and Jo-Anne, my namesake! I already know the other two who spend their day on camp as I do. Sue and Charda are also very involved in after-school activities. Sue has asked me to join them in helping the children with their clubs which they love. They have Scouts (this is big in Kenya, more about this later), a computer club, a science club and have now introduced a journalism club. I know I'm going to enjoy joining in the extramurial activities of this progressive Kenyan school.
