We came back down the mountain and Nangalesh kept joking with us and saying Merueshi was in some odd direction. But my dad and I were not fooled! We have impeccable senses of direction! We stopped by Scottys boma and had chai in his hut. It was very cramped but surprisingly cool. Nangalesh said some day maybe I would marry a Maasai and live in a hut like this. I just said maybe and left it at that. Scottys wife Jocinta came in with her baby who was absolutely adorable. He was always smiling at us! Jocinta gave me one of her bracelets, and Im not sure why but it was such a beautiful gesture. Kakuta said later it was probably because having visitors from far away in her boma was a very big deal.
We finally got back and ate breakfast and rested until lunch. I was feeling very homesick, not in the normal sense but because I have no communication with anyone right now. I feel like I have no one to really talk to about the things I want to talk about. I have no one to share the experiences Im having with. Plus my camera battery died and I lost the charger on the plane. Boo. So I was not in a very good mood and was getting really sick of all the dust and sweat that never goes away! I swear, that dust will get everywhere. I can just sit outside for a little bit, go to my hut, wipe my face off with a handiwipe and theres a film of dirt left on the wipe. Crazy.
Later, we went to talk to the school kids. They were all assembled and we were supposed to talk, but we didnt prepare anything.
We had dinner and I took a shower. Normally, a shower wouldnt be too exciting. Certainly nothing to write about in a blog. But when your feet are hot and sweaty and dirty, and you feel sticky and covered in dust all day, a shower is a beautiful, beautiful thing.
