Welcome to Kasiki
Kasiki is a kiswahili word meaning "water jar". For many years Peter and Caryn have helped raise funds for Church World Service (CWS) through our local Foothills CROP Hunger Walk in Littleton, Colorado. Last February (2006) Peter and 11 other volunteers traveled to Kenya and Uganda to see how CWS uses the money to help people in East Africa through many different types of development programs. This February (2007) we are both going as volunteers. Peter will be using his expertise as a hydrologist to help CWS and local Christian partner agencies evaluate community water projects. Caryn will be assisting in the water efforts, and writing about the people we meet and communities we visit.

Heading back to the USA
After a couple of days in Nairobi, a big city with people of many nationalities, faiths, and cultures, and with many languages being spoken, we're off to the USA this evening.
It's been a good trip. We'll update with more details of our individual days in Kenya after we've recovered from jet lag at home.
This is the artwork at the Grand Regency where we've been staying. It replicates a Maasai headdress.
