Hey all! As promised, the internet is being a bit better behaved, so I've posted some pictures from the first week in Nairobi - it was a whirlwind!

The view from our balcony!

Oh, you know, UNHCR is across from our apartment - no big deal.

On our way to Naivasha for orientation, our bus got a flat tire and we had to wait by the side of the road while it was fixed.

Overlook at the Great Rift Valley, on our way to Naivasha - amazing! The road there was built by Italian POWs during WWII.

Fisherman's Camp, where we spent a day during orientation. Look at all the sheep!

Don't know which animals those skulls used to belong to, but they're huge.

Where I ended up after our drop-off, just chilling with some Kenyan shopkeepers for about an hour.

This was overlooking the spot where we stopped for our lunch on our way back to Nairobi. So pretty!

Sabina (one of our orientation assistants and a totally cool person) and me at the top of the Kenyatta International Conference Center, the tallest building in Nairobi.

Masai Market as seen from the KICC. Such a crazy place!


  1. I am so glad that you are safe and enjoying it there so far! You are amazing and humble me in Paris because I have electricity and all sorts of basic comforts that you won't have constant access to for awhile! You go, girl! ;)

  2. Hey Hayley! It seems like you've been having a great time in Paris, too : ) And honestly, it's not too bad - at least everyone speaks English! Having speak to French constantly would terrify me, but I'm glad to hear you're doing so well : )
