Images from Tenwek
Kayaking down Tenwek River: A few weeks ago, Dr. Ben Robert (ophthalmology) invited me to join him on the maiden voyage down the Tenwek River on his new inflatable Kayak. Hundreds of people lined the river banks watching these two crazy mzungus brave the white water rapids.
Enjoying the Christmas presents from Grandma and Grandpa.
One thumb WAY up! This patient was "stung" by a wooley caterpillar on the left hand and lost all fingers, but was able to keep her thumb. As can be seen in her face, she was perfectly happy with this, stating (in Kipsigis) that she was still able to scratch her head and pick her nose!
