As the silhouette of Mt Longonot, drew close over the horizon;
The red shimmering lake, was all I could set eyes on.
With relaxation ahead and the bike needing an “oil it”;
Nature decided, Kenny needed “quality time” on the toilet.
As Liz & Ruli’s Safari sun-downer laid excitement from Africa’s feast;
We viewed Rhino, sun drenched landscapes and real Wildebeest.
For Naivasha Children Shelter, we connected new computers;
Grateful to Dan, helping inspire these young childhood futures.
Whilst the kids party quaffed Sprite, Coke and Fanta;
I was thankful, some would say blessed, to enjoy playing Santa.
Debbie, Joesph, Paul and the team are such an inspiration;
The kids play tribute, to what happens under caring supervision.
With Christmas pantomime & Tusker at Naivasha Sports Club;
I gorged, scoffing turkey only to add just a little, seasonal Chub.
Christmas Day dawned, finished with red African Sunset;
How lucky, how grateful I am, to all I have met.
For Kajiji Cha Watoto, we donated a new fridge for these young African bakers;
Their delicious juice, bread & cakes makes the community very happy takers.
Yet still at Life Beads Kenya, the workshop was as frantic as I’ve seen;
To assist with their dream, we deployed a new leather skiving machine.
At the Naivasha Women’s Prison, where Minalyn’s mission continues;
We donated books, bubbles and much needed educational materials.
With huge thanks my hosts Peter, Minalyn, Sandy & Jesse;
OK I better stop, before this turns into a Kenny-style blog essay…
But as time wound on, my fitness as ever askew;
I know, as ever, this cycle journey must continue.
To Habesha, my trusty bike oh how I must thank her;
My African home tis quite possibly here, in lovely Naivasha.
