Nanyuki

One of the most unsettling things about our trip was the way people lived. Most of what we saw, outside of the wealthy areas around Nairobi, was a level of poverty that was well beyond any of the worst areas I had ever seen in the US. Stores were small and dirty. Food and other goods were sold at roadside stands consisting of tables made of branches. Coffins were sold along the side of the road with shipping containers serving as the store. Funerals consisted of a pickup truck with a coffin and 8 people riding in the back.

For all the problems we have at home, for all the political fighting deadlocking our country, for all the things that could be better here, we should all reflect on how lucky we were to be born and live in the US.
