Kisumu, Kenya

have finally tried to add some photos. its taken 45 mins so far so hopefully they'll be done before my time runs out. havent got much to report but am heading to katolo a small village about 1/hr from town tomorrow. theres so no running water or electricity so this is it for 2 weeks and hopefully i'll have a few more stories then. today we went to temak which works with young mothers and prostitutes and girls with aids and stuff and gives them vocational training to get them off the streets and generate an income. the girls were all so beautiful and welcoming so i think i'll be going back there when i can. this afternoon we're playing soccer with the street kids from hovic which is another organisation which feeds them and provides skills training and stuff so that should be awesome. yesterday we went to some markets and last night i got a taste of the Kisumu night life. ashur (the manager of our hotel) and a few other locals took us to the pub style place with live music and traditional Luo dancing. it was great! we were getting right into it and the locals loved it. they're all so into dancing here aswell and theres music playing in the streets all day.

the photos arent all Kisumu but dont have time to fix it, have put them on my photo page aswell so hopefully that helps.
alirght better go, thanks for the comments!!! keep them coming! and will be back in 2 weeks xxx

i only have myself to blame!
i cursed us!
as i listened through the night as our batsmen played like idiots, all i could think about is how i asked for this by saying it would be a draw!
maybe its your fault for having this blog site!!

all i can say is that us english believe that sport is for entertainment so we did our best to get a result out of the game, as the dull wicket produced by you guys was not helping the entertainment.

much love.
