Day 4



We can't drink the water from the faucet here because it will upset our stomach, so we buy bottled water from local shops. These two are very different ways to shop, but both sell water!


Day 3


The journey has begun!

We landed in London just as the sun was rising. It took almost 9 hours to get here. In about an hour we'll board another plane to Nairobi, which will be another 9 hour flight. It takes a long time to get to Africa from Texas!!
