Such are the many wonders of Nairobi.

In other news, Lauren is getting married! I fly to San Diego tomorrow and land on Thursday night. Sadly, I only have seven short days to get there and back. While it’s a miracle of the modern age that I can travel ten time zones twice in seven days, its’ definitely not natural. I’m not sure what my mental/physical state will be a week from Wednesday, but I’ve already told my classes that if I fall over, they are to prop me up at the piano and just keep singing.
