Heading Back To Kenya
At my feet are five external hard drives that will be part of the creation of a learning center at the hospital. Up til now, most learning materials were dusty textbooks from various decades in the past. I hope that during these next few months, we will continue to solidify our relationship with the hospital and med school through teaching and capacity building efforts. I also hope to eat lots of beans, chapati flat bread, and the local kale known as sukuma wiki.
It's not easy leaving lovely NorCal behind (the picture shows a recent day of olive picking in the Dry Creek vineyards), and it's even harder saying farewell to the people I care about. I certainly felt it more intensely this time. But hopefully someday, as I look back at why I did it and what we accomplished, we will see that it was all worth it.
