1st day in Kenya

Deplaning our 747 - on the tarmac, which I happen to know that Jon Straalsund always loves to do!

Flights were without incident. We had one lost piece of luggage (which re-appeared today which means Lance is a happy camper!) and had to pay $200 duty for all our stuff (which was a "new rule" from past years but we feel pretty fortunate it wasn't more).

Sunday morning - check out these pill-packin' gals...

After counting and organizing meds all morning, most of the group walked to a nearby mall for lunch and a bit of shopping. I met up with Bill and Julisa Rowe (plus the boys!) for lunch and then to see a touring play Julisa directed. I've met several of the actors before through drama conferences here in Kenya so it was a treat to see them. Unfortunately for me, a big wave of tired hit me just before the play started so I'm sure I did not quite catch all of it.

After the play, we went to a pizza place for a good-bye party for Tony, who is coming to New York City for school in film and writing. Here he is looking "surprised" at the T-shirt he's receiving, which had been passed around the table in full view all during dinner so fellow actors could write on it.

Now he's giving a "tearful" good-bye speech (remember, these are a bunch of actors!)

And of course everyone was "sad" to see him go... Well, they probably really are sad.
