You know you’re in Africa when:
~It rains on your clean laundry hanging out to dry and you call it a second rinse
~Chickens that live next door are your “weed and feed”
~The sheep are your very own lawn mowers as well as pets tied to a post in your front yard
~You’re not sure if you’re getting a tan because you live on the equator or your bath water looks like this before you actually bathe
~This is Aquafina at it’s best: Purified water=4 hours of direct sunlight
~You get an urgent call from the OR that a woman is in on the table in need of your blood type so you rush in only to find that there is only 1 man who has a key and he is at home. So he comes 30 minutes later only to take you to a secret refrigerator that has a secret stash of blood that no one knew about.
~You wake up to this every morning:
~Everyone stops to say “Habari” or “Hello” and shake your hand
~The rooster that lives next door begins crowing at 3am, then 3:30, 4:00…
~You are greeted by these faces every time you get home:
~You don’t need a floral shop all you have to do is go to your backyard and find this:
~Electricity during the day is “optional”
~This is 10 minutes away from your home:
~When you order a couch and ask for light green this is what you get:
~You have to travel 2 hours to get your computer modem serviced (sorry it’s been a while since we've posted)
~Things are quite comical around here at times, but it keeps life interesting.
We are enjoying our adventure here.
Love and praying for you all!
