Day 1 – Arrival

Our two long days of travel have come to a good conclusion. Having left Grand Rapids, Michigan on Sunday just after noon, we arrived in Nairobi’s international airport at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. Monday night. Two different groups departed Grand Rapids with an hour, and both landed safely within two hours of each other.

The drive to Karia in the dark was uneventful with the exception of three random donkeys crossing the road. As always, Ben Wachira is a gifted driver on these roads, and we split the space between the last two donkeys. No animals were harmed and neither were we! We arrived in Karai just before 11 p.m., and we were greeted by some of our friends and a feast of food.

It’s now well past midnight, and everyone is sleeping. I too need to shut off the last remaining light as my body needs rest. We will try to keep this site updated daily during this trip.
