*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.

sad shower-head

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…

sleeping space and net

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.

teeny tiny college-esque desk

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…

clothing to jewlery ratio...

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.

extra stuff i brought with 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.

private bathroom and cute storage space

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! 🙂

oh kiwi, how i missed thee!

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!

kiwi all gone!

  1. Are those potatoes that you brought with you from Uganda? Cause we DO have potatoes in Kenya the last time I checked…unless there is a potato famine there now which can be very serious as Ireland will tell you. Please advise about the potato situation.

  2. fear not famine-worrier, there are still plenty of potatoes here in kenya. your eye has caught sight of a kiwi and tangerines. we may call the irish potatoes, but we are not experiencing famine. kenya appreciates your concern.
