I took some pictures in the store and was chastised by a store employee. Then he saw my name tag and said it was okay but don't do it again. So I didn't get a picture of a sign that said "Priority for Pregnant Women" at the check-out. Also "Priority for the Handicapped" but that's more common. And I didn't get a picture of all the rubber boots for sale along with the high-heeled shoes. Rubber boots are a necessity here if you do any walking.
We always enjoy visiting with people in stores. We've met the nicest people! We definitely stick out like a sore thumb! I always tell them who we are and why we're in Kenya. They always listen (they don't roll their eyes like they do in the West) and they say they'll phone the missionaries and some actually do. I asked one store worker if he'd ever heard of our church before. Turns out he is a less-active member who wants to start attending again but didn't know where to go. He was surprised to learn that there are now 15 congregations in Nairobi, including two stakes.
|These are our neighbor children. F* had just gotten her hair done. So cute!|
|Cool display of Prosciutto ham. Thought our son Craig would enjoy seeing this picture! This is the picture I was reprimanded for taking.|
|Now that we don't do the hour drive into downtown Nairobi, our drive isn't as interesting. But this is a cool scene on the way to the mall.|
|Everything is for sale on the streets.|
