You Never Know

In Kenya…

You never know if you’ll have enough water. This so-called long wet season is turning out to be pretty dry…we haven’t had rain in 2 weeks.

You never know when the power will go out. There’s only one outlet in my house so there’s always at least one thing that is not charged (CIs, phone, or netbook). Power go out for a couple of hours or for a couple of days.

You never know if you will run out of kerosene or gas while cooking a meal.

You never know if you’ll get what you need at your village’s market. It can take a few days/trips to finally get eggs or milk.

You never know if vendors will be open at your village’s market. I have given up on trying to figure out their schedule because there appears to be no schedule.

You never know if you will get what you ordered at a restaurant. There have been times I’ve tried to order something only to be told they were out of that food or couldn’t cook it because of no electricity.

It certainly keeps life interesting. 🙂
