|Adu is in Form 2 (sophomore) and Pope is in Form 3 (junior).|
I squeezed in a stop to see Agnes and her boys at Kocholia, which turned into a four-hour visit. We had a nice time together and I finally got to see the two schools where the boys attend.
The two boys and I squeezed onto one motorbike that was passing by, as the school is a fair distance from their home. Oh, my! The driver was not only unfamiliar with the road, but also seemed to be quite a novice at driving a motorbike. Additionally, parts of the road were covered with stones. We actually ended up in the ditch at one point. Needless to say, it was a rather precarious ride!
The guy in the white shirt is the evangelist at the church next door to the church, and the lady was the gatekeeper on the day we stopped by. They ended up giving us an impromptu tour of the school compound.

|Yummy! Hot chai, warm roasted groundnuts, and hot roasted maize!|
Great snacks in the village!
|They're growing up! Zach is now in Class 2 and Duane is in Class 5.|
To get to Duane and Zach's school, we walked... also a bit of a distance, but at least it was in the direction of the stage where I could get a vehicle to Eldoret. Along the way, we stopped often to visit with neighbors or relatives of Agnes.
It added more hours to an already long day, but I'm glad I opted to stop for the visit.
