Catching up, Nov/Dec 2016: Shimba Hills - Won't you join me for a cup of chai?

Mwea, the grand-daughter of Stella's neighbor, enjoyed hanging out with me.

While Stella prepared chai and breakfast,
I took a quick 'bucket shower' in this crude enclosure.

The neighbor 'sho-sho' (grandmother) chats with Stella,
as she washes dishes from last night's dinner.

Stella, Masudi's mom, pours in a full packet of milk as she makes a pot of chai (tea).

Mwea sets the utensils on the small table.

Ah... at long last the much anticipated chai is ready to be served!
Also on the menu are mandazi (slightly sweet fried bread), leftovers from last night's dinner, and bread I bought at Ukunda.
Mwea is excited to have store-bought bread!

Stella sits down and enjoys chai with us.

Everyone is happy with their cup of chai! It's such a large part of the culture in Kenya!
