A Day In The Life

I’m all settled in the apartment in Kiambu Town, and I’m so happy to be staying with Ann. She has taken me to visit her family in the village, explained how to navigate and survive the matatu scene, and taught me how to cook some really delicious meals! I learn something new every day, and I guess I’m becoming a local because they gave me a Kikuyu name, “Wangari.”

I’ve gotten into a routine and this is a pretty typical day:
typical day 1typical day 2

It’s a busy but fun day!  I’m usually asleep before my head hits the pillow.  Life is good.

  1. Wangari is the Kikuyu word for leopard. The teachers say it fits well because the leopard is brave. My spotted backpack made the name stick! It was fun to hear their explanations, and I was honored by their comments and being given a Kikuyu name.
