After a very hard week in the ICU that still isn’t done, a hike down the escarpment is good for the soul.
Last week was a vacation week for our family. The kids were out of school, and so I took a break from the hospital. We hired at taxi to the train station, boarded the SGR Express for a 5 hour trip to Mombasa, and then hopped another taxi to the small village of Kilifi. In Kilifi we took a 16 hour beginners sailing course. It was mostly fun and sometimes frustrating, but we all learned to sail in just a week. (More practice will be required by all of us.) On our second day of classes we were placed in small boats by ourselves as we manned the tiller and the mainsheet solo, hopping from side to side to maintain the balance of the boat. Every one of us capsized at some point which was part of the fun. After four days, we hopped on the train and began the 11 hour trip back to Kijabe, sunburned and accomplished.
It is always good to get out for a walk. I have no idea why this ladder we found was where it was or to where it was heading.
This was awhile ago, but the pictures are still a joy. All the people of the world living in peace. It is a great hope for the future, when all things are made right! We have so many countries represented at RVA.
