When we arrived back in Cape Town we all moved into the Anglican guest house on the Cape Town University campus. That is where Holly lives and it worked out perfectly because all of the students were gone for the holidays so we were each able to have our own room. In Cape Town there was so much to do and I think we did a pretty good job of fitting it all in. We went wine tasting, saw the penguins, did the Red Bus tour, saw the District Six museum, went to the beach, visited some of Holly's co-workers from Hope Africa, went to the waterfront, went to Kirstenbosch Gardens, hiked Table Mountain, did a couple of sun downs and attended a service at the Cathedral. Amidst all that we found time to just relax, go on a few runs, and just enjoy each other's company as well. I think Cape Town may be one of the prettiest places I have ever been. For a big city, it was great because there was a view from everywhere of either a mountain or an ocean. We spent New Years at Kirstenbosch Gardens. There was a concert and we brought a picnic and we were surrounded by what most of described as the setting for Jurassic Park minus the man eating dinosaurs, of course. It was probably my best New Years to date.

I arrived back in Kenya a few days ago and I am slowly readjusting to life here. It was refreshing to be with friends for a couple of weeks. Overall I am glad to be back and ready to work. My mom comes in a month, which is exciting. I cannot wait for her to experience all Kenya has to offer and meet the people I work with here.
Elections are quickly approaching and for those of you that do not know, back in 2007 Kenya had terrible post election violence. Please pray for peace and understanding among the people here. Elections are to be held on March 6, 2013.
Thanks for reading! I would love to hear how you celebrated the holidays and welcomed in 2013, don't hesitate to send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org or write me a letter. You can find my address in the links and contacts tab above.
