Yes, it’s been way too long since I’ve updated.
More to come soon.

Tonight we decided for something a little different we’d go out to eat.

We went to a restaurant right in the heart of Nakuru town. The restaurant is a story above the street, and wow, I wasn’t prepared for the bird’s eye view of the street. For the first time in a very long time, I felt like a tourist. Thankfully I had thought to take my camera along and I didn’t waste any time in putting it to use.

At first we were all just incredibly amazed at the masses of people and the traffic. But it wasn’t long until we started noticing some things.

The streets were packed and no one seemed to have any patience.

Some people seemed to get a kick out of cutting off the flow of traffic.

And in the middle of all this mess, there were all kinds of people trying to cross the street.

There were people turning, passing, stopping…chaos would be the word.

About this time I started realizing I’d be doing the same thing if I were out there driving.

If the cars and people aren’t enough to get you flustered you’ve also got bikes and motorcycles.

Oh and yes, can’t forget donkey carts.

It was so often that a vehicle nearly hit a pedestrian or almost rear ended another vehicle. I’m still surprised that we didn’t see any bad things happen.

Stalemate. The traffic kept piling up but no one could move. The one truck wanted to turn right, but traffic was blocking, and the other truck wanted to pull out, but traffic on that side had gone crazy. It took a few minutes to end the jam.

I would have hated to be the car caught in the middle.

Soon it started raining and the people cleared off the street.

All in all the traffic was very entertaining for us and made the long wait for our food go rather quickly.

But the yapping dogs are actually a more pleasant sound than the sounds of the street. It’s good to be home again.

The other day I had a  little photo shoot with my 2 youngest siblings. It was a lot of fun plus it gave me some much needed practice!

I guess Jeffery is a typical ‘youngest one’. He seems to enjoy every moment in front of the lens. I certainly don’t mind that. In fact I rather enjoy it :)

This old tire made a great prop. I got Jeffery to lift it up. Poor guy. I forgot how heavy it is. He struggled and carried on trying desperately to get the tire in upright position.

After several tries he did manage to get it off the ground. Later on I went to move it and was amazed that he was actually able to lift it. Guess his determination got it done.

As much as I love the ‘green’ that surrounds our compound, it really doesn’t give much variety when it comes photo shoots.

‘what would you do if Katie would come and give you a big kiss?’

One of my favorites.

After I took these, I kept wistfully looking out over the wall at the rays of warm, evening sun. Sadly those rays never hit us because of the trees and the walls.

My beautiful sister.

I love how the ‘think about what would you do ifs’ bring out such a natural expression.

This chair is definitely going to be added to my list of favorite props.
