Fourth of July
July 3rd Cale and I took the moto to Kisumu to drop off some keys with a student who had forgot them in Mumias after the mid-internship retreat. Since we were already in town, we decided to stop at the Nakumatt to find the fixings for a proper Fourth of July. We knew we weren't going to find any fireworks, but we figured we might find some hotdogs or hamburgers. After looking at every tubed meat product in the cooler, we settled on something that most looked like hot dogs. They were labeled as frankfurters and the package guaranteed at least 65 percent meat! How exciting, 65 percent meat!
In addition to the hot dogs, we also had actual Heinz ketchup (there is nothing that we would consider ketchup in Kenya) and yellow mustard. In addition, I made potato salad; an avocado, tomato, onion, and lime salad; and a mango cobbler. Cale made tortilla chips for the avocado salad.
We sent out an invite to the interns in the Mumias area and had a small celebration of America. The meal was quite the success.
