It’s only two weeks tomorrow until I go to Kenya. It still seems really surreal and I can’t quite believe I’m actually going to Africa. It’s going to be an amazing experience. I expect some things about the trip will be challenging, such as seeing real poverty. But I’m a glass is half full kinda guy so I am excited to see the work that’s happening at the Nakuru Hope project where the school has been built and the land for growing food has been bought.
Some readers might remember that I cycled 100km every day for 31 days while still going to my full-time day job and part-time university classes. You can read about each day of that challenge through my Cycling for Hope page here on my blog. Well, the $2,000 that was donated through that cycling challenge has been put to good use as part of the money that was used to buy the land.
I’ll have internet access while in Kenya so of course I’ll share my experiences with you all. But for now, I’ve just realised it’s only two weeks tomorrow until I leave so I’m excited.
