one american's view of life in kenya

My favorite part are the pictures and the strange slice of life things from a place I've never visited.
Paul -- I wouldn't change anything. I like your blog because of the memories it stirs up, your on-the-ground viewpoint, the surprises (you know, wow, why haven't I ever thought to take that picture or write about that?).Bob
As I work for the same organisation as you, but no longer live in Africa, I want a place I can point friends to and say; "that's what life is like there". You do a great job Paul.
I love your blog-your brief descriptions of life in Nairobi get to the point. And you bring insight into our own western US culture. And I LOVE your trash art!
Well, I LOVE to be the critic, but I can't think of anything that I even slightly "hate"!Your blog is great because you keep it up to date and it's straight to the point. I can read it when I have a few minutes and just need to see something refreshing and different. It inspires me to think because it's NOT over-thought.
You are all too kind. I appreciate you!It's great that you are enjoying it. I am too. (Still.)
HiI have just come across your blog. I arrive in Nairobi on the 28th April and will be doing a 2 month volunteer project. I am very excited and very nervous as i am going alone. I will be looking fwd to reading your blogJas
I like being reminded of things from my childhood. It is great.Will you blog back home?
When you get back to the USA, tell us about any culture shock (in reverse) that you may have adapting to your own home.
Will do, toneloc.And Jenny, I will continue blogging, even after I return to my homeland. I'll give the link to my new blog as part of my final Nairobi post.
