Most Tuesdays Sue and I visit the local fresh fruit and vegetable market in Kimwarer Centre, about five kilometres from the camp. This time after I made my purchases, I walked over to an old building and photographed the shop with a sign hanging over the front of the building.
The Joy Beauty and Hair Saloon was not yet open for business when I took this photo
Next door to the ladies' Beauty and Hair Saloon, is a barber shop offering the Jordan Haircut a flat-topped, retro hairstyle favoured by the modern man in North Africa
This happy little boy is playing on a structure which the children use as a jungle gym. Here he calls to his friends just out of sight to the right who were too nervous to approach too near to the Mzungu (white man/European/foreigner)
There is so much around me as I live in and travel around Kenya: beauty, love, grace, nature and raw Africa. The company we work for and Nico and Sue in particular, spend a lot of time, money and energy on the upliftment of the community, especially the children in the Kimwarer Valley. I have posted about the school and the enjoyment we get out of being involved. You can read about this here. Once the holidays are over, I look forward to re-immersing myelf in the school activities with Sue and Sharda.
