nairobi recap - photostyle

A picture of the Great Rift Valley as seen from Rift Valley Academy. This picture doesn't do the Valley justice, but I didn't have a chance to take any really good photos of the view. It's quite spectacular in person.

Drew Keller, Daniel Psalters, Kevin Keller - whipping up some delicious milkshakes to follow our tasty authentic Ethiopian restaurant dinner

The team of pastors who help Philip (third from left) distribute the Upper Room devotional around East Africa. It was an honor to spend a couple hours asking these men questions and listening to their answers.

What a funny giraffe! You should have heard the joke she told me when she introduced herself. :-)

It's called multi-tasking. :-) Notice how big their heads alone are, as big as or bigger than my torso. Amazing animals!

Trick or treat! (People spend big bucks to stay overnight in this cool-looking but amenities-challenged house on the Giraffe Center grounds. Maybe it's worth the big bucks to feed the giraffes right from your bed.)

Taking tea with Ronald in his office in the government reforms department.

Downtown Nairobi. The view from Ronald's office suite. Nice, huh?

The Capitol Hill area of Nairobi. The brown building on the lower left is the judiciary building/high courts building.

James, the Kellers' compound's daytime guard, escorted me downtown and gave me my first matatu lesson. (Matatus are vans that fall between taxis and buses in the transportation food chain.)

My good-bye (for now) Kenya dinner at Java House with Andy and Jodi and the Psalters. (Andy's taking the photo.)

Hannah and Daniel, the two oldest Psalters kids, who I babysat when they were babies in Elizabethton, TN, and their dad was learning how to fly from my dad.

So, great to see these pictures of you and of friends from our Moody days. I can't get over how old Hannah and Daniel are now. Wonderful experiences. Thanks for taking the time to blog and share these experiences and pictures with us. -Mom-

Kami, great shots! The portrait of James the daytime guard is my favorite.
