Our departure for language school was put back by a week as we were co-opted to deliver our peace-building skills workshop to selected members of the communities in conflict with whom we have been working. This time we worked without an interpreter and used a mixture of Kiswahili (well, mainly our Kenyan colleagues did but we had a go too!) and our English which has now been judged as sufficiently morphed into Kenyan English complete with appropriate accent. It appeared to go down well. We just hope that when we next return to the UK you will all be able to understand what we are actually saying….
We leave on Sunday for Nairobi and language study and hopefully the old brain cells will hold out. We’d value your prayers if you’re that way inclined as the journey involves some tricky bits and there are frequent road traffic accidents here.
It is stunningly beautiful in Kenya at the moment and things like this flower growing outside the CBR building are a daily source of joy: just wish we could share it all with you in person.
