Happy Earth Day 🌎🌍🌏
I thought I loved Africa already. Kenya already had such a special place in my heart. Then I came to the 'spotted place'. Our ancestors first explored open savannahs. I knew my love, passion, and infatuation of the Florida Dry Prairie was something primal. But today it was confirmed. Grasslands have my heart, it is home.
And that's a wrap! This sampling trip has come to an end and one of the things I will miss most is story/tea time with my team. Working on small homesteads, the families welcome you into their home, make you tea and serve you lunch. It truly is one of the greatest things about Kenya, I always, always feel welcomed.
A breezy and rainy morning in Port Victoria. The weather didn't slow the constant movement of this little fishing village. Soaked and cold, the fishermen pulled ashore to sell their catch by the kilo to the street vendors. Just the same, the weaver birds were collecting their nesting material and chattering above the streets. Each species bustling about, with no regard for the weather or each other.
