Since I last wrote it has rained and rained. Only recently has the sunshine returned. This has given the farmers inland their best harvest (for some the only one) for two years.
However, thousands of Kenyans living near major rivers and dams have lost their homes from flooding and are living in tents. Our church, the local Rotary club and the Red Cross have been amongst those donating clothes, food and toys to the displaced.
I briefly visited the UK in May for a clinic appointment and enjoyed the warm sunshine in Oxford and London. Barbara and I met up and took a riverboat from Westminster to Greenwich giving me a chance to reminisce about my student days in the East End and marvel at how much the Isle of Dogs has changed since the days we cycled from Whitechapel, then crossed to Greenwich using the tunnel for our day trips.
