Day 118 – 120: Nakuru

We got up early and had breakfast with the Aucamps. Today they’re visiting one of the Yasha Ministry schools and we’re going with.

We offered to drive with our vehicle and more people came in another one. The other car overheated after about 2km so in the end it was just our car with 5 adults and their youngest child.

The school is about 35km from Nakuru. It is a preschool for 4-5 year olds. It’s made from clay and has two classrooms and a store room. In Kenya children need to be able to read and write already before entering grade one. It was thus quite strange to see these 5 year olds workbooks with neat writing in it.

The Aucamps handed over stationery packs which a sponsor provided.

After some photos we went to a local tea house with the school principal. The milk tea is premade and as soon as you sit down they just fill up a tin cup for you. We also got two mandazis each. The 7 cups of tea and 15 mandazis only cost 350 KES (R40).

Back at the house we just relaxed for the rest of the day.

On Saturday we took a makato (minibus taxi) for 30 KES p.p. to the Nakumatt for shopping. After Nakumatt we walked to the Happy Cow cheese outlet store. To get back to the house we had to take 2 tuk-tuks of 250 KES each.

For dinner we made mince with rice noodles with three different cheeses.

On Sunday we slept late and just relaxed again. Having lots of conversations about everything. For dinner we made roast chicken and vegetables in the oven.

After dinner Lydia, another missionary from South Africa who’s been in Kenya for 16 years, invited us for a glass of wine. The one hour visit turned into more than 2 hours. Back at their house the children were all so tired they went to bed before the adults (for the first time since we arrived). We took out a box of Belgian chocolates that we bought them as a gift and we finished the whole box with them. It was pure heaven.
