"we saw a horse on the beach"


I love how detailed this is! It is a much better way for me to spend my procrastination time than looking through the photos of randoms on facebooky. keep it up!
miss you...glad to know that you're having a wonderful time.

Hi Andrea & Kate,

Glad to see some pictures of your adventure abroad .. Looks like you're off to a Great Start !! Not sure about the Lamb Lung but the Library
Studying looks promising .. HA !! Enjoy it all .. You're so lucky to be on such a fascinating trip. Are Webber's everywhere ..?? (They'll keep you Girls in line.. maybe..?)

Love Ya Lots from Little Ottawa

How wonderful to tap into your travels, Andrea - and not surprisingly, they are already sounding very rich. Enjoy - and think of us as we skate our way up the will be making your way up the Nile. Lots of love...Karla, Samantha and June
so nice to hear from you guys!
actually just took a felucca trip up the nile. so incredibly beautiful. even went swimming in it -felt about as cold as the canal though!
crazy to think that you are skating on it now!

hope all is well - with work, school and everything else.
when are you in africa next june?

lots of love.

It sounds like you guys are having such an amazing time! I am oozing jealousy over here... Seriously, I just had to wipe up my table. Much love and be safe!
xoxo Em
hi erma worm.
so nice to hear from you babe. hows toronto and the research going? if you ever get sick of the lab or the snow ( i hear theres lots!) my advice would be to just head down the street to cafe la gaffe and order some soup. particularily the spicy lentil with coconut. it will make you warm all over. of all people i know YOU would appreciate it too. tell them i sent you and eat some for me!
love love love.

(and Ktq, though we have yet to actually meet eachother).

I can't believe you met Steve Howe! However, your entry doesn't really say anything about How you met him. I own a Yes cd, actually. I think that makes me pretty lame. I hope you are having fun.
i knew i could count on you to be a steve howe fan - if no one else. he was just sitting in my relatives kitchen when we came back from feeding the cows one afternoon! i just thought he was a big hippied out old dude. and then i saw a photo of him rocking out in purple spandex. if only i had known at the time! hope you are well friend. lets hang out and listen to YES when i'm back in toronto.
From Danielle Simpson - Monday, 5th February 2007, 23:08 (GMT)

From Meredith - Tuesday, 6th February 2007, 18:12 (GMT)
I think I need to leave cold Canada and come travel with the two of you! What do you think?
YES!!!! get out of that country and COME with us! not sure how to tell you where we'll be. at this point it's somewhere south of nairobi. i'm sure you'll find it though. you're a experienced traveller. perfect. see you soon then. can't wait. ha. miss you babe. xo
From marcus - Wednesday, 7th February 2007, 22:31 (GMT)
KTQ - those shots of Egypt were unbelievable. Breathtaking pyramid shots. I am rooting for you guys over here. Keep the pics coming!
what a great compliment coming from a fellow photographer.
heading to massailand tomorrow so sit pretty friend. there will definitely be more to come.

hope you are well.
From The Fonz - Thursday, 8th February 2007, 15:38 (GMT)

I can't believe you sailed on the freaking Nile! Your pyramid pics are so National Geograhic-esque. You look like you're having the time of your life...don't forget to shave your legs. Wish I was there!!

Much Love.
don't be such a leg-hair hater. it's now so long that i can definitely feel it moving in the african breeze.

and it's actually nice and breezy here in nairobi. trying to tie up loose ends and get into contact with people on the ground here in nairobi before we head out tomorrow.

how are you lovebucket? i miss you and the rascalz.
hope the tuesdays are still kickin and make sure you be visitin my mom!

From Ella - Friday, 9th February 2007, 21:17 (GMT)

Ella really likes your pictures. Especially the gooners in london. She misses you. (Perhaps you could post a picture holding a card with her name on it.)

The babies are really happy Ella reports.

Ella warns you to be careful. She saw the palace and wishes you to know that she likes princes.
princess ella.
i'm so happy to hear that you like the pictures. hopefully there will be more coming soon - of elephants and giraffes! wonderful to hear that your new brother & sister are doing well - please give them a big hug for me! the african children at the school were VERY excited to receive the books you sent and thank you VERY much - they especially like the ones with big bird! i miss you too. we'll take buddy for an extra long walk when i get back! xo
From Jen - Saturday, 10th February 2007, 07:30 (GMT)

thinking of you loads, j
From Scottish Sheep - Sunday, 11th February 2007, 17:18 (GMT)
Dear Katie and Andrea,
Why did you eat my lung?
b/c it tasted like wheatabix with a little kick. oh so delicious.

and by the way. sampling ostrich meat just doesn't compare!
From Jackie - Sunday, 11th February 2007, 17:22 (GMT)
Team, your pics are so lovely! Absolutely incredible! We miss you here at Ol' Brown's Place! Keep the pics coming! So much love to both of you!
The pics are on temporary stall and i apologize. you might have to wait to see pictures of my maasai boyfriend when you come back to torontotown!

miss you soooooooo much lovebucket!

From The Marvins - Friday, 23rd February 2007, 22:34 (GMT)
We just found out about your what fun you must be having! Aunt Elaine

Hi Katie! I's Suzi. Egypt looked sooo cool! I hope you had fun there!
Hey guys! Looks like Babsie is passing is on the info to the whole fam. So glad you liked the pics Suz!
Maasailand is wonderful and beautiful and every sense of the word. The projects are starting to take shape and it's really exciting.
I think Suzi would be excited to hear that I saw some ostriches fighting on the way to school the other day. I became so attached that I named them Lovie 1 and Lovie 2!!!

miss you all loads and can't wait to see you all soon!

From aunt leslie - Saturday, 24th February 2007, 15:30 (GMT)
Katie, We are enjoying the info and pictures. I'm sure you are not able to update but I hope everything is well and you are safe. I think of you often and know that this is an adventure of a lifetime. I'm wondering about your teaching experience. Hope you find it as fulfilling as Ross and I do. Love always, Leslie
So nice to hear from you!
The teaching experience is definitely different but a wonderful way for us to get immersed in the community and connect with the kids. Nevertheless, it is immensely difficult at times dealing with the infrastructure, lack of resources etc. So, we're helping out where we can and enjoying every minute of it.

How are you all doing? Much snow in Indiana? I hope you are all well and am sending sunshine and smiles from nairobi.

From Sarah - Saturday, 24th February 2007, 19:40 (GMT)
ANI!!! Damn! I left a message a while ago, but I think maybe it didn't work??! I dunno! Friggin' stupid of me! I miss you...loooooving these pictures and looking forward to more updates. Excited to hear more about the Massai...I did a project on them last year! LOVE YOU!!! xxoo Sar
no need to fret lovebug - both messages worked...we just have to being checking our site to post them & haven't had internet access for the past 2 weeks. so nice to hear from you not once but TWICE though. double the love. them maasai are pretty cool bunch eh - we've been learning of many a plant and natural remedies involvng lots of boiled roots, bark and goat fat. yet to use any of them...but must admit the idea of smearing goat fat on my skin is somewhat enticing. sould i be admitting this publically on the internet? perhaps not.
hope school and everything else in an around mt.p & ranleigh is going well babe. stop in and see mama webber if you are ever walking by - she would love it.
From Rick & Gayle - Saturday, 24th February 2007, 22:47 (GMT)
I am really enjoying reading your diary entries and going through the pictures. The pictures are amasing. The stories of your adventures has really got my imagenation going. This will be an adventure of a life time. Be safe and I am hoping to see new entries soon.
Rick & Gayle
happy to hear that you are enjoying the blog guys. our internet access has been limited as of late (last week i had to climb a tree at the top of a mountain to try to get cell phone reception!) but we will hopefully have some new photos to post on our next visit to nairobi. hope all is well in ottawa and you aren't freezing. just picture us on the deck of the cottage with a gin & tonic and bruchetta. or mayb this summer i'll attempt some african culinary delights - i've been learning. only 3 more months!
From farron - Tuesday, 27th February 2007, 20:55 (GMT)
wow, those egypt photogs are off the hook. straight up. i do hope that you are taking pictures at maximum resolution, and that this intrawebsite is the one that is downgrading the quality, and introducing all those image noise artifacts... enuff chop talk, back to enjoy the the san fran sun.
farron - wish you were here you nerdlinger you! can't say we're up to speed on all the techie stuff. what our internet cafe (the top of the mountain behind our camp) lacks in technological specs is certainly made up for with a lovely view of the rift valley! as you can see, getting any kind of reception is a bit of an issue. but nairobi is serving it's purpose as our current hub centre of correspondence.
From The Fonz - Thursday, 1st March 2007, 17:39 (GMT)
1. I want to meet your masai boyfriend
2. I'll work at K-lore for the summer if you will
3. I can't believe you're in Africa
4. I can't believe you're in Africa

Much Love!!!!!!!!
1) come to maasailand and you can. 2) he might be imaginary. 3) kandalore for the summer??? you gone crazay!

love and miss miss miss.
sere (goodbye in kimaasai) friend!
From joe - Friday, 2nd March 2007, 13:30 (GMT)
you ladies reply to pretty much everyone! that's amazing!! (as ironic as it would be, you don't have to reply to this...)
you set that one up nicely!
found a great book that you should borrow or try to get your hands on for your swahili studies.
swahili simplified by Peter M Wilson. trust. it's the best one out there.

tutaonana yoseph!
From Marcus - Friday, 2nd March 2007, 15:58 (GMT)

How kick ass was that entry Katie? I feel culture shocked just reading that, thank you for spreading it to people who can't be there. That's what travelling is for. I'm linking this from my blog.
sure sure sure.
that sounds fine fine fine marcoo!
i hope you are well these days and if you want another shock check out alonzo's post.
the nerdlinger in me wants to make a joke about a time travel machine but i will can just imagine!!!!
