KT- After hearing all the hype around our house about your travel blog, I thought I would check it out. I must say, your writings and pictures are amazing! My mom (Aunt Leslie) even showed Grandma some of your pictures on here. I hope you are truly enjoying this experience...and I would love to hear some of your stories! Be safe and savor the moments! ~L<3ve, Em

Katie, i love living vicariously through you and your travels. It sounds like an amazing experience and I can't wait to hear more upon your return.
Don't worry the tdot has remained cold for you and I continue to make lattes...oh nothing has changed. Although I think I'm going to UBC next year :)
I heart you...stay alert, stay safe
jambo and congratulations rafiki!!!!

So wonderful to read your updates! The experiences you guys are having sound truly incredible! I miss you both - stay away from scorpions! I'm sending lots of love from Scotland to Kenya!
apparently the scorpions aren't so bad. just bloody painful.
but we found out yesterday from our friends the "bug girls" (they do research on spiders) that the small scorpions with the large tails and small pincers are the worstest! they have to compensate for the size of their pincers by releasing very strong venom. aiya! and those are the ones we have been killing all over our living room floor.
but we're out of maasailand now so you don't have anything to worry about my sweet.

we miss you and john loads and hope you are both splendidly well.

XOXO

Hey Girls,
I am glad that you are enjoying E-Wuas so much. I just read your blog and it made me a little teary eyed. You described the exact sentiments I felt last year when first arriving to that wonderful place. I know several times I tried to explain to Andrea what it is like there but I think only the eyes can tell. Please, Please, Please give my love to Richard, Nixon , Ezeikel and everybody else. Tell them I think about them everyday. I hope your girls have a great time!
Love
Heather
supa friend.

so wonderful to hear from you. and happy that we were happy to bring back some warm memories of e.wuas. its true, you have to see it to understand - words don't really do it justice. back in nairobi now and missing it and everyone there so much. will definitely pass along the love to everyone. they all spoke of you fondly and miss you too - especially charity. hope all is going well out west. we'll have to get together and talk e.wuas when we get back. there are few others who will be able to understand i think.
until then...SERE!

Just wanted to say that I was thinking about you today for some reason. How do you make that NOT sound creepy? Not sure.

Good post.

Kyle
only interpreted in the most lovely of ways friend...not creepy at all!

will post again soon. andrea and i left maasailand yesterday and are certainly feeling a big deep void. but today we will renew our spirits with a visit to mathare to see some of the youth from MYSA (mathare youth sports association an organization that africa soma often partners with) perform the sickest of dances. they are lovely performers and great kids. can't wait.

hope you are doing well on the west coast friend. any plans to visit onterrible in the near future???? i SURELY hope so.

When do you two sweethearts plan to return - any chance of a detour to 4 Brown's Place on the trip home? So much love to both of you!
hot diggity damn.
oh man! we would REALLY love to but we aren't able to change any of our flights. we already tried to swing a flight through london to pick up a bunch of the shizz we left with caro but alas air canada managed to bite large chunks out of our asses once again.

hakuna matata though. we will be reunited once more. hopefully over a plate of imitation haggis.

and by the way. andrea and i managed to scramble up a new culinary delight.
it's a new-agey take on "ye olde meat" with textured vegetable protein. abso-friggin-lutely delightful!

miss you two lovelies!
hope you are swell.

peace and love.

Katie-
Your and Andrea's travels are very exciting. I'm overwhelmed with your stories and experiences. I feel very ignorant about other cultures. Right on about the over consuming North Americans and I'm one of them, shame on me. It all seems so different but somehow it's so in sync. I have a work friend who is returning from Nairobi today. He was on on mission through his church. Best of experiences to both you and Andrea.
Be safe,
Uncle Tom
P.S. I hope you let Mike do his OWN paper. Sounds like he needs to "delegate work efficiently" by better time management. They also teach that in business management.
i'm glad you are enjoying the minimal postings.
i can't wait to share more stories with all of you soon and see the new baby!!!
lots of love.

can't wait. i miss, miss, miss you!
buckets full of peace and love.

ani, my love...as i sit here studying the brain (yikes!), good ol' CHFI is blasting our song. Yes, my friend, it's whitney and her classic i will always love you...now, i'm not actually on TOP of the dining room chairs right now...but in spirit, i really am ;) what a perfect time to look at your blog and think of my ani! sending hugs...i know a tiny piece of that feeling of not being able to describe things you're experiencing a world away...but you did good babe :) miss you and can't wait to hear it all. xxoo Sar
i WILL always love YOU, my little brain genius you. i think it just might be about time for us to get up on the chairs and do that one all over again. thanks for the hugs babe. will be there to return them and tell you all about the things i struggle to adequately describe on the blog in person. keep those CHFI tunes rolling. love love love. xo.

Hi Webber!

I'm glad that you are having such an amazing time! I can't wait to hear all about it when you are back. I miss you lots, but know that you are having a fabulous time.

Love Hyppo

P.S I know that this post is lame, but it feels funny to know other people will read it...I guess it's because I'm not a part of the facebook phenomenon. Love you.
kiboko.

Is it odd that I tear up a little whenever I read your entries? Well done friends.

crying is cool friend. we're honoured that our minimal postings are having such an emotional effect on someone out there. just let those tears flow.
peace and love.
andrea.
ps. katie describes you as a 'truly wonderful and curious spirit'. you are also officially our blog's #1 fan - congratulations. rest assured, there will be a prize. looking forward to meeting you one day and perhaps communicating in a non-blog form.
