January 11: Feeling right at home

Posted in Kenya on January 11, 2013

Today was another full day. The base layer had already set and we spent the better part of the morning wiring rebar into a grid. The rest of the time the community volunteers mixed concrete and poured it into the rebar grid.

Margaret invited all of us to view her beautiful farm, then into her home, and after grace, served us a delicious lunch (the main meal for Kenyans) of mokimo, maize kernels, boiled potatoes, and the boiled leaves of calandra, which is the leaf of a squash vine. The meal included a fragrant meat and vegetable stew and shredded cabbage with wonderful spices. Finally, to finish it off we all had chai either sweetened or unsweetened.
