Dan is also making it a bit hard. We only have a few weeks left together. I'm not gonna lie, it won't be easy for me in the U.S. without him. Might have to convince my family to take a trip to Kenya! But as of now, the plan for him coming in November and staying through Christmas is still there. I might come to Kenya for a couple of weeks in November, so that I can fly home with him. Apparently he's going to send me a ticket, though I don't think I'd be able to accept that!
I've grown an addiction to roasted maize. This might be the death of me, since I buy it off of street venders, and who knows if it's clean?? But it's soo, soo good! Laura and I have decided that when we go back to the U.S., we'll both find jobs either in Chicago or Minneapolis, move into a shitty apartment together, take a Kiswahili course, speak only in Kiswahili (or Sheng) to each other, and buy feed corn and roast it, so we can still eat roasted maize. Might have to buy a jiko then. A jiko is a tiny stove using charcoal. Good for roasting maize and making chapati! That's the sad part, hakuna chapati in the U.S. Dan's mom said she tried to make it using normal flour, but it didn't turn out right. Maybe I can smuggle some unga into the U.S.!
Today I'm heading to the street kid base again, to talk to them and take some pictures. I'm kinda nervous because Simon (one of the boys at the Shelter) isn't with me today, and just before we entered the base yesterday, he told me that it was a dangerous area. But I think it will be ok because I spent the whole day with them yesterday. They're a nice bunch! I'll add some pics of them later, but internet is too slow today.
OK I have nothing to say. I thought I did, but I'm so hungry cuz hakuna kitchen at Chris's house, so I need to go eat now. Promise though, I'll add pictures!!!
