*peacebuilding (peace-building? peace building?) and reconciliation: second edition addressing accommodation.
some photos (from my camera phone, so don’t judge the quality too closely) of my very dorm-room-esque room. and kiwi fruit.
okay, so there is plenty of hot water, i will say that as a positive for the entire training center. a hot shower (heck a lukewarm shower) is a real treat these days, so i will not snub that fact. however. this is the most pathetic excuse for a shower head i have experienced in quite some time. water sprays every-which way… there are so few holes that the amount of water coming out, regardless of the water pressure, leaves a lot to be desired.
i would be better off holding a watering can above my head…
so for my first 2 nights in kenya i stayed at the mennonite guest house and had a KING size bed. all to my lonesome. and it was. amazing. albeit the mattress was a
bit hard. well, i’ve gone totally the other way and am back on a single mattress, but this one is delightfully cushy. can’t win the all, i suppose.
i brought everything that is on this desk. thats right, i schlepped all those books all the way to kenya. which means i’m totally obligated to read them. before i leave kenya… i’ll do my best…
yes, this is all the clothing and jewelery i brought to kenya for an entire month. yes, i brought more pairs of earrings than shirts. stop judging me.
much like college, i have a stash of stuff that isn’t supplied. this stash of stuff greatly resembles the stash of stuff i kept all through college and while doing my masters. one must be who one is, that’s what i say.
i am always always always thankful to have my own bathroom. and to be wearing long sleeves for the first time in quite some time. also, go duke! 🙂
okay, so the kiwi fruit has really nothing to do with peace building and reconciliation…however i just wanted to boast that i have been enjoying a constant diet of fruit and veg since arriving in uganda. this is rare in kotido. (especially for fruit. and if i EVER see kiwi in the kotido market i will know that the world has officially come to an end.) it was delicious, and its little friends are destined to be devoured soooooon!
