Village roadtrip

Today our maintenance guy was taking his daughter back to boarding school and I decided to tag along with him. The school she goes to is one that we work with. We help them run their Christian Union. It is also the school that took us over 3 hours to get to a few months ago due to the intense rain, muddy roads, and never ending hills. It was quite the adventure but a beautiful one. The area is called Shimba Hills and literally, the hills never end. You go up and down and up and down and up and down.

I was sitting in the middle seat in the back while Nyae, our maintenance man, and his son, Tsuma, were up front. You can see the simple, narrow road we are driving on. 

Mamas carrying things on their heads= love it. 

This was hilarious. This school has the funniest sayings posted all around the school. Like on the side of a building, it says "The roots of education are bitter but the fruit is sweet" and "the road to success is tortuous." But I thought this one was hilarious. This is where the students who are making noise in class go for a time out. They are forced to sit or kneel beside the tree as a punishment. Mary and I were sent to the "noise makers in class punishment corner." Look at our sad faces.
