Naro Moru, Kenya: Nearing the end…

Posted in Kenya on December 29, 2011

It’s becoming bittersweet as we get closer to the end of our adventure in Kenya. It seems like it happened overnight, but the pipes are now being laid down and the trenches are being covered back up with the rust colored soil. We have about half to go tomorrow and we should hopefully see water in that tank before the end of the day tomorrow. My shoulders are bruised from carrying the pipes back and forth today – they are a lot heavier than they look! I am so happy to know that just 7 of us made this possible, and of course with the support of all of those who helped us get here in the first place. We thank you all for making this an experience of a lifetime. Tomorrow will be our last day on the project – seems like we got here just yesterday. I am super excited to celebrate with the committee members and a few of our new friends tomorrow afternoon – out come the party clothes! What I am not looking forward to is having to say good-bye.

Lala salama,
