Super Wednesday

February 6, 2008

I am extremely happy to announce that my husband was awarded a National Science Foundation Grant for his work here on developing stock markets!! We just found out today.

I’m super über proud of him!

It’s a quick trip today, but wanted to show some pics.

First foray into filming out on Mombasa Rd. Sunday. Absolutely shattered by the drive on the lunar quality surface, but we got some good stuff!

Saturday afternoon climbing, very civilized!

Sweety sweetness at the giraffe ctr on Saturday

the famous Giraffe Manor, and more warthogs :)

Road out of Lukeyna climbing area Sunday. Cliffs are on the left, including some rather large hornets that we avoided. Headed over here to a sport cliff, where we got our booties kicked!

Parting shot from Lukenya. Not the best, but I will have to try to better capture the weaver bird nests in the acacia trees.

Soon, more floriculture and horticulture news so I do not comPLETEly lose my garden blogger cred.
Take care ~ L

    OK, so if we can’t have pictures of YOU, we’ll settle for those purple gariffe tongues. I’ve always been fascinated by those!
    Climbing the sides of houses….is that what goes on at garden parties in Kenya? :-) Such interesting people all of you are.
    (No fair editing the next two sentences.) We are proud and thrilled for Chris for the NSF grant; HOWEVER, you need to give yourself the credit he also rightfully dished out to you! You were a very supportive part of making it happen.

    Those were great pictures … slices of life in Kenya. No wonder you are proud of your husband! That is good…

    Any garden pictures are welcome – more than welcome as we get hit by more snow.
