Trip East

This week we traveled over 1500 Km to familiarize ourselves more with the country, see the countryside landscapes, and check up on some of the work our partner organization has been doing in that region.

The road was flooded in part, which necessited a long (over 40 Km) detour in the dirt. That was good preparation for the dirt roads that would take us to the villages we needed to visit.

The meetings we had in each village were quite fruitful. It was neat to see how the community is developing.

Although most of the millet and sorghum are still green, harvest is already beginning in some places. We hope it will be a good year--even though the rains started so late.

We didn't see in giraffes, but did see lots of camels.
