some photos so far...

Hey guys... I know you've been waiting patiently... so here are a few photos of our trip so far. we've been up and down the kenyan coast (to Lamu Island and back down to Mombasa), and now we're on our way across the border to Moshi, Tanzania to see Mt. Kilimanjaro.

Thanks so much for all your warm wishes and prayers so far!

The photos below are:

89-a fresh mango juice and a tusker - our two favorite things in kenya so far
142-eric in front of the "freedom corner" in uhuru park in nairobi - a memorial to the work of the green belt movement and wangari mathaai
196-an acacia tree, out the window of our bus on our way to lamu island on the kenyan coast
266-our broken down bus on the road to lamu. we broke a drive axle, and our mechanic had it repaired in under an hour... he should be in the pit crew in nascar!

Hi Eric and Megan, We just returned from a month in Europe and we are so excited about your adventure and so thankful that we are on your blog...we spent two weeks in Spain and then two weeks in Romania loving on our "special" child from Peace Corps. We will pray for the two of you and God will give you His peace during your time in Africa. Aunt Peggy and Don
