"IT IS SO HOT" by Rashna and Minami

Day 6 March 25th (Friday)

Mad event at Aga Khan

Although I haven't heard much from what happened today, but I did hear that it was fantastic, which I am happy for, because that is all that matters. My next event will probably be the dress rehearsal of "Mad Night" in Aga Khan Academy, which is the upcoming music and dance show which I am stoked about. I am expecting much from these kids, especially after seeing quite a few of them rehearse! I am especially especting much from a student singing a very powerful Beyonce song, which I have no clue what it is but I know from memory.

Kenya--Shawn

As we were leaving the airport on Saturday night, no one knew what the next few days were going to be like. After the first nine and a half hour flight (in which I got no sleep) we landed in Amsterdam. We had a 5-6 hours layover there, and then boarded a plane for another eight and a half hour flight. We then landed in Nairobi, and managed to gather all of our baggage in the midst of complete chaos. We transferred to their smaller airport, and took our last 40 minute flight to Mombasa, where we were greeted by a large number of students. It was an unforgettable journey.

Kenya!!

Hello!

Amazingly Hot

Plane Ride:Sunday, Saturday and Monday

Kenya Trip

Day1 March 19th(Saturday)

Today, we left for Kenya. Our first flight from Vancouver to Amsterdam was at 9:30 p.m, we were thankful it was not a early morning flight like when we went to Costa Rica last year. The flight was eight and a half hours long; majority of the time was spent sleeping.

Day2 March 20th (Sunday)

We reached Amsterdam at 2ish in the afternoon. This was our first time to be there, but we did not get chance to leave the airport. We hope we can look around the way back.  We did not do much in Amsterdam. Our second flight to Nairobi at 7ish.

First Day of Teaching

We hit the school again today, it was our first day of teaching and I was really looking forward to it. I know how lesson plans work, you write and write the night before and then you are all ready to use it when all of the sudden things change and you have to start from scratch. So I was up last night writing lesson plans preparing for them to work like a charm when, of course, things changed.

Goats, goats and MORE GOATS

         From the beginning, I was packing all the summer wear I could bring to Africa that I could; however, I was still short of some more clothes. My family and I did some last minute purchases for shorts and t-shirts in order to be able to have enough clothes when I got there. This day was the longest day that I could ever imagine and my realization of going to Africa on that same day never came to me. When it was time to be driven to the airport, I was still checking whether if I left anything behind that I might need.

My Kenyan experience so far
