Because the roads are horrible.  I didn’t take pictures…pictures of potholes are boring.  But we had something like 300 miles of pothole to cross on the way to Loki.  Long sections of the road were more pothole than road.  The road used to be paved, but the pavement has crumbled away.  You can’t grade the road because of the remnants of pavement.  Anyway we made it.  We stopped in Eldoret the first night and stayed at the AIC Missionary college and the second night we stayed in Lodwar with the Yosts, much to Alex’s approval.  Zach Yost is his best friend from West Nairobi School.

It’s the start of the rainy season, and the rains have started.  Fortunately it’s only the start.  The road here crosses any number of luggas (dry rivers) and they do fill with water when it rains.  We had one river crossing to do, with water washing up over the front of the hood.  The landcruiser handled it fine.

Anyway…I don’t intend to drive that road again until we go back to Nairobi before furlough.  We’ll fly, definitely.

Loki is hot. Hot hot hot.  The house is nice though we’re having some issues with the refrigerator.  It’s our first experience with a propane fridge and so far it’s not wonderful.  The freezer works, mostly, but the fridge part barely maintains something around normal room temp. We brought our car fridge and it’s doing duty as our freezer.  We’ll have to work out something on the fridge though.  That’s the project for the rest of the week.

I fly on Friday and Saturday and then some next week.  The schedule is pretty light at the moment…good for us to get settled in.
