Hello peeps,
I have now been in Kenya for about 3 weeks. We are currently in Loitokitok doing training and will be here for another 8 weeks. Over this time I have learned to bath in a bucket bath, live without electricity, walk about 4 miles a day, live with a host family, and wear skirts everyday. We have language everyday which is coming along but still quite frustrating. I will be working here in Loitokitok with a maternal and child health clinic helping out not sure with what yet but I will keep you updated. I am pretty excited about this. We found out our sites yesterday and I will be going to Chwele. It is in the Western Region near the Uganda border and the city of Bungoma! I really wanted the coast however I am pretty much as far away as possible :( There is a mountain there and the scenery is suppose to be really beautiful. I also have some other volunteers close by.  So I should be good. I will go there if I get through training in August and will be there for the remainder of the time. I have been having a good time but I do miss America a lot, especially the hope all of you are doing good and you guys can email me or call me whenever since it doesn't cost me anything for your calls, but they might be expensive for you. Well until next time.

Got a phone!

Got a phone and explored Nairobi a little today. It's a little crazy with the traffic. They put so many people in the bus and taxis here that sometimes they are hanging out the door. Still learning the language and it seems to be going pretty well. Tomorrow we are going to our site for the rest of training and getting ready to meet our host family. Well going to call some people.
Phone number is
+ 254-704-596-586

Ps- if you are to call its free for me however not for you so check with your carrier on how much it costs. Also you have to do the + before the numbers.

Hello everyone, I just finished staging in Philly and leave for Kenya tomorrow. I just wanted to let everyone know that once I get in Kenya my communication will be very limited for at least one week. Then hopefully I will be able to get a cell phone. This is due to the integration to the host family and language learning needed. So if you don't hear from me in a while its a good thing not a bad thing. Staging went well and I think my anxiety is decreased however still there. Well thanks for checking in on me and I look forward to sharing my experience with you all.
