Wednesday. November 12, 2014 – Arriving in Kericho – the tea plantation capital of Kenya

We had a fun travel day to Kericho.  Stopping at the Sogobet School. It has become a favorite spot for a stop and to see the progress in just a few years.  Warren Schnoor and family of Lacombe are developing this school.

Most went to a tea factory while others went shopping. We arrived at the Exotic Hotel which is set amidst a tea plantation. Some hungry people enjoying a snack on arrival.

Behind the scenes doing a lot of the technical work for the medical team is Glenn Hutton. Always willing to do whatever is needed.
