16 July After an Alka Seltzer Cold induced mini-coma throughout the night, we set off at around 10 in the morning only to be met with a problem along the road once again.  This time the muffler caught on a stone in the road and ripped clean off of the vehicle.  Some kind passersby (one of which was actually a mechanic) stopped to help with the . . . read more

July 7, 2014 We were on the road again this morning at exactly 8:00 which turned into exactly 9:30 due to a broken timing belt in Enosh’s vehicle.  We had plenty of time to scour the supermarket’s shelves for all of the toothpaste they had which included a free toothbrush in the box.  We ended up with 165 toothbrushes and tubes of toothpaste . . . read more

First morning here at Jemima’s.  Slept a solid 6 hours last night.  I was delayed an entire day and had my entire itinerary changed from Phx/Chicago/Brussels/Nairobi to Phx/DC/Zurich/Nairobi with no stopover in Kigali, Rwanda.  Jemima and family’s generosity is still unmatched.  She went and got a phone for Sherman, did two airport pickups, . . . read more
