Just to orient everyone, I'm working in Mombasa (It's an island. Sort of.) and living in Nyali Beach, just north of Mombasa. (It's the "rich" area, where all the white people live...although I haven't seen any other white people yet.) You can see them both here. Not such a bad living situation. I think it'll suit me just fine. So far, there are two other interns here that I live with, Aaron and Andi - an awesome couple that got married about four months ago. It's really cool that they're doing this together as newlyweds...but I don't think I'll go that route.
I'm at Yehu now, just waiting around to get a folder of info so I can learn about this place, and maybe possibly figure out what exactly I'll be doing here. Over the next week or so, I'm going to try to get more oriented and take some pictures of the everyday stuff (like my mosquito net-covered bed, the Nakumat A.K.A. Wal-Mart, and the packed matatu taxis I ride to work), so you can get a feel for what life here is like.
I was going to upload some pictures from my travels, but the Internet is too spotty. I'll try to do that later. But just know that I'm here and all is well!
