As for now, I am sending you Swahili greetings from Kenya! I arrived to my hotel this morning at 1am and crashed, despite the 6 hours of sleep I had on the flight here from Paris. I then proceeded to sleep until 1:15pm. Needless to say, I did not see or do much on my first day in Kenya outside of some work, a tepid shower and a nice breakfast/lunch/dinner with my colleague, Laura who had arrived from Ghana at 7am this morning. We were a bit punchy but managed a small walk to and from our meal.
|On the recommendation of another colleague, we checked out Java House which was rumored to have great coffee and lots of foods that ex-pats love. Since we were both coming out of sleep comas, it seemed wise to not send stomachs into any foreign territory yet. I had a cheese, tomato and guacamole sandwich, some seasoned french fries and a lovely mocha.|
I am now forcing myself to stay awake until 10pm in order to get myself on this new timezone, 9 hours ahead of home. The next week will hopefully bring you more exciting posts but I wanted to at least let those who worry (mom) know that I made it here safely. Thanks for checking in!
