This is the house we are staying in in Nairobi.

No, seriously.

This is the gigantic, superbly comfortable bed we're sleeping in.

This beautiful kitchen is where the chef cooks outstanding meals.

And this is the dining room where they are served.

This is the luxurious backyard where we enjoy glasses of wine by the firepit.

And the living room where we watch world cup matches.

In the afternoon, we play a little catch with the dogs on this lawn.

And this library is, as you can imagine, incredibly exciting for me.

This, is Amelia (on the far right).

She hiked the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu with us. Later, we ran into her in Buenos Aires. Recently, she introduced us (via email) to some great friends of hers in Nairobi.

Hils and Hugh (who I do not yet have a photo of) have been extraordinarily generous in inviting us into their home upon our arrival in this overwhelming city. Each day we are asked absolutely baffling questions (by their staff) such as, "What would you like for dinner tonight?" "Do you have any laundry you need washed?" "Would you like to use the car today?" "Can I make you a drink?"

Huh? Are you talking to ME??

Last weekend, we accompanied Hugh to a golf tournament at his country club. Next weekend, we're joining the neighbors for dinner and cocktails. We are absolutely blown away by what gracious hosts we have been blessed with, and are honestly unable to thank them enough.

In a few days, we shall move on to a hostel to begin our volunteer work. Though, I'm not gonna lie, they may need to have their security gaurd physically remove me from the premises.
