All arrived back at Heathrow safely

Thank you for everyone’s thoughts and prayers for us. We all made it back to Heathrow this evening after the most wonderful trip to Kakamega.

We did have one incident on the way from Kakamega to Kisumu this morning to catch the flight back to Nairobi. We were travelling in two matatus and as we passed a junction two motorbikes came out of a junction. The first matatus  beeped like mad and they stopped. Then one motorbike came out without looking right across the path of the second matatus and only by very good driving was a bad accident prevented but the matatus did go off the road and people were very shaken. Thankfully everyone was unhurt but it was a near thing.

Got a few more memories to put up (especially videos) and a “bluffers guide to Kakamega“.

Andrew and Lucy are coming to the UK on Tuesday for a month (because of Andrew needing to be checked out after his operation last year). We hope to organise him coming to Springfield.

      How interesting Brian. I was sat next to a clown who had spent a week out in Kenya working with children there. She was part of a group from all over the world who were using their skills to engage with the children there. Is that something that can be done by the magician fraternity as well?

      A matatus is a small bus that drives at breakneck speeds and picks up passengers as they are going along (ours was a private booking). They usually have 12-15 seats on them and have a driver and a conductor.

    Yes, thank you for all the blog entries. I have so enjoyed reading them. I look forward to more as you reflect upon your experiences in Kenya. It is so nice to have fresh information from a country that we knew and loved so well.
