A very long journey to start the day, to Kangoli, but again the weather is good. We find our venue is a cute church with a crowd already gathering. To start with we sit in the church to be officially greeted, then set up, again with most of the work going on outdoors.
Another busy day with an ever increasing number of patients braving the wait in the hot sun. We all get a break at lunch which proves to be one of the best (many of the meals so far have been leaves, cabbage, chicken, chicken broth, chapatis and rice which gets monotonous though we were grateful for the efforts our hosts went to) with fruit eggs and nuts. Our hosts also assisted us in the hot conditions by producing large quantities of soda (Coke, Sprite, Fanta mainly).
An early finish today as we have booked dinner for our group and translators at the Kitale club. This is one of many clubs set up by the British in colonial times to provide sport (golf, tennis, squash) and a social life for expatriates, and is now a social hub for the town's middle class. As well as enjoying the meal many of the group make use of the showers as washing facilities are limited in the mission house.
