This morning we left Nairobi. And as it is always the same on this trip our stay needed again two times longer, than we calculated in the beginning. But again was it unbelivable eventful and would not fit in a shorter period of time anyway.
Dear sisters of the St. Benedictine convent, thank you again for your amazing hospitallity, for the nice time with you, the perfect atmosphere for our work, and also for the exciting look in your way of life.
And also thank you for all your blessings. With this concentrated travellers-blessing given by a whole nons monastery nothing bad at all can happen to us anymore.
On this note, I will close with: Bless them, guide them, love them, to all of you!

Now we have been spending nearly a week here in the Convent of the Benedictine nuns. We have been kindly hosted, are treated well and are even able to participate in some daily duties for example in the kitchen. We live on an island of calmness and shelter directly next to Mansari, which is the second biggest slum of the city and has 500.000 inhabitants. We spend our time getting familiar with the local circumstances of living; visiting the local school which is involved in a Linux 4 Africa project and where new computers are to arrive from Germany this summer; talking to pupils from the slum and to the headmaster Emily and to the teachers for computer science etc.

We crossed the border between Ethiopia and Kenya. After a short indigestion and fever we arrived at Moyale in Kenya. Now, about 500 kilometers of veldt lie ahead of us. We will travel them on the roof of a truck, together with a few fellow Kenyan passengers.
