Back To School

First thing in the morning, the cow has to be milked for Kenyan tea. In Meru they have tea at least 8 times a day, since it is much colder by Mt. Kenya. This morning we helped out...but we were too slow, so we only gave it a few tries.
Milk does a body good, but milking makes the fingers slimy

After having tea and a couple of slices of bread, we met the children of their school. In the morning, they always sing songs to start the day. After a few questions from the kids, they requested each of us to sing our national anthems. Alessio (from Italy) did an excellent job. Between the two of us, we managed to get all the words...but we'll leave it at that. The children then sang Kenya's national anthem with no problem.

Saying our goodbyes, we headed to Gitonga's hometown, Ntirimiti.
