Back to Kenya

I arrived in Kenya last night after a grueling flight. It turns out that I flew so much last year, that I’ve seen just about all the movies I would have ever wanted to see on the Delta on demand system. It was pretty slim pickings.

The flight, of course, was filled with kids on their way to spreading the gospel of white people to helpless Africans. I’m never sure what these people really do.

Today, we have to drive out to Lake Victoria. I was really apprehensive about coming to Kenya right now, but now that I’m here, I’m happy that I came.

Is a balmy 90 degrees, so I can’t complain about really much of anything.

    That is awesome. I never imagined (nor did you, I’m sure), that trips to Africa to do science would one day become almost routine for you. Hope you have enough time and internet access to keep us updated.

    P.S., I’ve had Couch’s “Old Man” in my head all week. I think it probably has more to do with thinking of myself than thinking of you. It’s probably that groaning sound I make that triggered the memory.
