every morning at KIWAKKUKI, the women headed clinic for HIV/AIDS and orphan support, we begin with prayer, song, and announcements. of course it is all in kiswahili so most of it is a blur for me. occasionally i have been asked to read the prayer--in kiswahili. it is always good to provide people with laughter in the morning. my favorite song is "karibu, karibu, tu ne sena..." literally - welcome, welcome, we are saying."

it is sung every time someone comes to visit, returns from a meeting or holiday. it becomes a bit ridiculous--everyone breaking out into it over and over, especially when you have no idea what is going on-who or what we are welcoming.

mmm a delicious "vegi burger" all the fixings of a hamburger, minus the hamburger itself. obviously, why was i surprised?
