Jerry, Amy, and Shaban left early this morning for a two-day stint teaching about filters, pumps, wells, and sanitation and hygiene in the Tireme area (about 20k from the Kenya border). They'll be back tomorrow night. In the meantime, the school continues, the building continues, and we are doing the first re-thatching of our roof (after four years). The roof should have lasted six years, but we had a couple of drunks do the first thatching. Had to fire them in mid-job and hire someone to repair their mess. It is being done right this time by the man (Amos) who has thatched the rest of the buildings here. Still having trouble with the internet, but at least we have internet to have trouble with.
