On the weekend I headed to
to help out as an official at the Safricom Family Challenge which raises money and awareness for Kamili (one of the few mental health clinics in Kenya). I had heard about the competition over the past couple of weeks; the competitiveness and seriousness of some teams versus the fun and games of others (and really...some teams took it VERY seriously! I think one couple has filed for a divorce!). My event was a tree planting challenge. It may not have been the most mentally or physically exhausting of the events, but it was such a worthwhile challenge, as all the trees were planted in the permanent staff quarters to give them shade.

The challenge was held in such a great location, just a short drive over the Rift Valley; hopefully I will go back to watch a Polo match another time. After tree planting we walked where giraffes roamed and enjoyed some Tuskers looking over the open savanna.

Now I am back in rainy
ready for another busy week at the ‘w’ place. Nairobi
