Orphanage visit

The photo below is NOT of the orphanage, rather a street scene shot off the girls' balcony at the orphanage. And here is also a photo of the kids playing soccer and running around on the "playground" behind the orphanage.

The kids who live here come from Kibera, the largest African slum on the continent. We were going to go there after the orphanage trip but there was a humungous traffic jam and Rachel had 3:00 plans. Instead, Steve, our driver and a person who works with the orphanage staff, took Rachel and me to the Masaai market to do some shopping. Both Rachel and I found some treasures...for her house and for me for Christmas gifts. Cannot wait til Heidi and Kristin see what I bought Chase and Owen!!
