Our new friends at Korando 😄

After some great days in Kilifi, we finally arrived in Kisumu. We arrived at the Dome house, from the Better Me Foundation, what we can call our new home for the next weeks.

We already have some things that we like to do here, like walking around the neighborhood during the morning and watching the beautiful African sunsets in front of the house.

01-Dome2

The house is right next to the school, so when the kids get out we love to go there and play with them.  +photos

05-Ana&Kids

We are really happy to be friends with these amazing kids. One of the first that we met was Tebil, who became our Kiswahili teacher. One of the official languages in Kenya, the other one is English.

02-NewFriends

We also met Akama, one of the most cheeky kids around here, and Tiago's best friend now. 😁

04-Hakam

Akama was all week teaching Tiago how to play the tire game. It's harder than it looks!!

13-Akama&Tiago

Saturday was game day. All the older boys join for a late afternoon match. They always play barefoot, the ground is very rough and full of holes. The final result was 4-4. ⚽️

15-FootballDay

There are always a few fans watching the game. This time were the younger kids from the neighborhood and Ana.

16-Adeptos

During the week we found Nyanza Club, a relaxing place with a swimming pool.

07-Pool1

Since we can't surf here we had to find another way to exercise. We also love to swim so it became part of our routine here. +photos

08-Pool2

After swimming, we have to recharge our batteries, and there is nothing better than a buffet with traditional Kiswahili food.

09-Pool3

This time we ate chapati (a delicious wheat flour cooked with oil) with rice and vegetables!  +photos

10-Pool4

During the last days of the week, our awesome teacher gave us a full paper with new Kiswahili words to learn. Now we have a lot to study!

11-ShawiliTeatcher

Between all of this, we still have to work, but it became really hard with all these amazing kids around 😂

12-Tiago&Kids

During this next week, we will give some art and design workshops to the kids.

Stay tuned!

Amani ✌️ (Peace in Kiswahili)
