Greetings from the Samburu Lodge and Game park.  The group is taking a much awaited rest and relaxation day by the pool and going on game drives throughout the park.  The internet connection here is spotty, so this post will be short, but hopefully as we head to Nairobi in the next few days, we will be able to fill you in on more details and pictures of our time in Sedai.

After 2 days of travel, we arrived in the village of Sedai in the northern part of Kenya.  Our week there consisted of many activities, including fixing a borehole water system, holding a mobile clinic which included screening for trachoma, and conducting censuses and cultural interviews. It was an intense week filled with joys, challenges, and wresteling with some difficult questions.

Throughout our safari, the group remained safe, and for the most part healthy.  We all came away from our experience in Sedai with a different perspective on life and the search for water in Kenya.

More to Come...
