This is where we lived from 1989-1999 in the Loita Hills of southern Kenya. It's a long way from anywhere else :-) Hennie Marais in England sent us this photo yesterday. He was there recently.
I post it for Carrie because she lived here on this same clearing as a little girl before our family did. Her house sat right where this one does but it was made of wood and, sadly, it was destroyed by fire a couple of years after we moved in. We built this one out of stabilized soil blocks, which are very like adobe blocks. Byron and a crew of Maasai friends made them. It's a great house. Now our very dear friends at Walking With Maasai
So here's a shout out, (though they rarely have the chance to go on-line,) to our friends at Walking with Maasai: Andre, Kashu, David and Francis... We love you and pretty much think the world of you!
