Today's picture shows a "Water Witch" looking for water. She is using a forked peach limb, which purportedly will bend down in the best spot for a well. While I know people who deeply believe that water witches can find water, I remain skeptical. It does make a nice income for some people.
Well, my time is Africa is drawing to a close. I fly out of here on Tuesday. I fly from Kitale to Nairobi, Nairobi to London, London to Dallas, and then a five hour drive home. Actually that is a pretty good set up, and have been on much worse in the past.
I am trying hard to get the projects finished here. The well is so close to getting done. Because of the rain and dampness, the concrete at the top of the well is slow to dry and is delaying the installation of the pump. The pump installation will only take a few hours, but we need the concrete to dry. We are putting the finishing touches on Chickie Town, East Africa Edition. The coop is almost finished, and the chickens should be delivered in the next few days.
