After several days of activities, our crew was getting pretty tired. Today was a day to catch our breath and try out some individual activities. Some of our group visited a college class for Kenyan students; one shadowed a physical therapist at the hospital wing for children with special physical needs; others took the opportunity to sleep in a bit. Later several visited the dukas (shops) to collect some souvenirs and gifts. Exactly what they found should probably remain a mystery for a few more days.
Robin and I grabbed chai, mandazis and samosas at Mama Chiku’s cafe. Mama Chiku’s is a long-standing institution at the dukas. Chai (Kenyan tea), mandazis (like donuts) and samosas (spicy meat pies) are popular favorites. Our midmorning snack set us back $1.70.
Later in the afternoon we spent time talking about the course readings (yes, this is a class, after all!) and watched a bit of a Moffat soccer game.
By the end of the day, most of us were feeling reenergized for the couple busy days ahead. Hard to believe the trip is half over already!
