America’s been a great change of pace for the past five weeks, but I’m pretty sure I’ll be heading back to Kenya soon. VSO sent me an e-mail last week saying things are calming down in Kenya and it’s looking like it will be safe for volunteers to return. This brings up an important point…
Update Your Bookmarks!
The new address for this website is https://alaninkenya.org but the old URL, http://sarainkenya.org, will still work for a few months just in case there are any stragglers! As you may have guessed, Sara will not be returning to Kenya with me. She is going to stay in California and do one or more of the following: look for a job, go back to school for a Master’s degree, or hang out. She’s open to suggestions so don’t be bashful! And go update your bookmarks (yes, mom, I’ll help you)!
We’ve spent the past month waltzing around California and Oregon visiting family, friends, and fans. In between our busy schedule of drinking coffee, eating spicy food, and discussing life, the universe and everything, I even managed to contract a healthy case of poison oak. So heads up to anyone in San Diego who wants to see Sara and or me before I head back to Kenya. We’ll be arriving in San Diego on Monday evening, and spending my few remaining days there.
Most recently we’ve been spending time with Sara’s parents in Cupertino. They’re fun to hang out with because they like food, hiking, the Daily Show, etc. One very clear day we hiked around Mount Tamalpais (near Sausalito) and we could see for miles around us. California is a beautiful place to live and it makes me wonder why people travel thousands of miles to see similar terrain. That said, I can’t wait to continue exploring Kenya. Hah!
Until next time… Alan!
