Kenya, Day 3

12-6 We spend the day at a U-15 soccer tournament held at the Nairobi German School. There are teams from the German School, the French School, WNS and several other American Schools around Nairobi. Graham plays for the WNS team. The WNS Rhinos come in second. Watching the tournament we were reminded that boys will be boys regardless of where they come from or where they are at. Once a game of soccer starts it is hard to tell who is Kenyan, French, German or American. They are all just boys having fun competing and trying to play their best.

How can boys play soccer in December? Most of Kenya is south of the equator so it is actually summer here. Nairobi is 4500 feet above sea level so it never gets really hot here but this is the start of the hot season. The temperature in Nairobi has been in the 70’s and 80’s since we arrived. The temperature in Northern Kenya, is in the 80’s and 90’s and getting hotter every day. We will be traveling north on Wednesday.
