SWIMMING IN THE SOUP
On the train from Mombasa to Nairobi
We're only 200 miles into our trip, with about another 100 to go. The train is slow, hot, and crowded ... oh, and did I mention hot?
After all, the more bodies, the more heat, and there were plenty of bodies on that train. And no fans at all. For some strange reason, the train's electricity only worked some of the time ... and not at all since we left Mombasa.
I'm so looking forward to getting to Kericho.
PAYING THE PRICE
Tomorrow I leave for Kericho, the heart of Dr. Pascual's research. And I'm pretty excited about it. I packed earlier today and Joaquin is taking me to the station later.
After all I learned in the course, I'm anxious to get to the heart of the question: as the climate changes (and it clearly is at this point), there are going to be huge consequences, and we all have to pay them.
