After packing, weighing, re-packing, shopping (forgot about those last minute items!), packing, weighing, re-packing, driving to the airport, weighing, re-packing, and shedding a few pounds (from our bags, that is), we and our 6 checked bags have made it safely to Nairobi, Kenya! My mom likes to say that our belongings propagate when we’re not looking. After this experience, I’m convinced she’s right.
Tomorrow we do some shopping around Nairobi, and on Tuesday, will drive the 7 or 8 hours down to Moshi, where we will be for the next 7.5 months. Steve will be carrying out a research project related to motorcycle crash prevention, which he developed when we were there last year. During that time we also put together a video introducing the issues surrounding road traffic injuries in this area.
It is my plan to update this blog semi-regularly in order to update you on life in Moshi, as well as hopefully give you a glimpse (albeit limited) into this part of the world. Please email or comment with things you would like to know more about – that will no doubt make for more interesting posts!
