Dear Mom and Dad,

All is going well here at Okokola (Kilima Moto). The people in the immediate area are very friendly. I left the house about 6:30 this morning and went to visit a couple of them. This seems to be one of the best times of day to call on people. The work for the day hasn’t started yet and everything is still pretty relaxed and quiet in the boma. I’m able to sit with them and share morning tea. Tea is a big thing out here among all the tribes in the area. It seems to be a hold over from English times. Wherever it came from, most everyone starts the day off with a tin cup of tea.

The other two places I’m working on have dropped off in interest. The rains have finally come and there is much work to do, planting and weeding, etc. Also it seems to be the time now to arrange for the 3rd or 4th wife and a hundred other things. But I’m still going to these places every week hoping that things will pick up again.
