Hello students!

Today is Monday. I will see you today!

Here are three more photos from Lamu. Lamu is in the far east of Kenya.

There are many boats in Lamu.

There are many donkeys.

You can see the houses that people live in.

We took the train from Lamu back to Nairobi. You can see me on the train.

Thank you for your letters while I was in Kenya! They made me feel very happy.

See you soon!

Hi Students! How are you? Thank you for your letters! They made me feel very happy.

I am in Nairobi again. I had a lot of fun in Lamu.

These photos are from Lamu. You can see the fishing boats. You can see Captain Ali. He took us fishing on the boat.

You can see me at the market. I am buying small gifts.

You can see two photos of the old streets in Lamu. You can see Teacher Two standing next to a man from Kenya.

Lamu was very beautiful and small. It was easy to walk. There were no cars.

Maybe later I can show you more photos of Lamu.

I miss you! I hope you are happy. I hope you're not too cold. It is summer here!

Hi Students!

Thank you so much for your wonderful letters!
It is great to see your names.
I miss you a lot.

Some of you asked about the toilets in Kenya.
In Kibera, the poor neighborhood, people go to the bathroom in plastic bags.
They put the bags in the street.
The street smells bad.

It is sad that so many people live with no toilets and no schools.

Right now the students at the Peace School are studying first aid.
We don't need to see the first aid, so we are taking a break.
We are visiting a small city called Lamu.
It is on the ocean.
No one has a car.
There are many donkeys.
People here are nice.

I have some photos of Lamu but the computer here is very old.
I can show you the pictures next week.

I am thinking about you all. Thanks again for your letters.

Hi Students,

How are you?

These are photos from a very poor neighborhood in Nairobi.

The name of the neighborhood is Kibera.

Yesterday I walked in Kibera for two hours. I learned a lot.

One million people live in Kibera. They have very little money. They have no toilets. They have to pay a lot of money for water. And they don't have much money.

I was sad to see the difficult life in Kibera but happy to meet the nice people.

I miss you!

Hi Students!

I love reading your letters here in Kenya. I miss you all. It is very good to go on the computer and see your names.

Here are some more photos here in Kenya.

In one photo, I am washing my hands in the restaurant. People in Kenya sometimes eat with their hands and no fork. I like to eat with my hands too.

In another photo, Andreas (Teacher Two) is using the video camera at the Peace School.

In two other photos, the students at the Peace School are playing games. They study from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and they like to play games when they take a break.

I will put up more photos soon!

Hello Students!

Thank you very very very much for your letters! I was so happy to read them!

Right now I am using the computer at the hotel. I can use my camera on this computer. I am very happy because now I can send you photos sometimes.

Here you can see:

Last night I went downtown with 10 people working with me. We listened to African music and danced. The music here is very good and it is warm outside.

I had dinner with everyone at the Peace School tonight. It was fun to talk with them. Everyone is from a different country.

I hope you are all doing very well! I miss you! Please write again.

Hi students!

It's Sunday afternoon.

I'm in downtown Nairobi.

I have photos for you but I'm having a problem with the computer.

I will try to put the photos up later in the week.

I have to go downtown to use a computer. Today we took the bus downtown. I liked it a lot!

I am working a lot. I am meeting many nice people.

Tonight we will meet with some people from the Peace school and eat dinner together.

I will write again soon.

I hope you are all well! I miss you. I am thinking about you.
