Sights of Lodwar - June

I renewed my habit of walking three or four times a week when I returned to Lodwar.  It is nice to walk in places I wouldn't normally be and see what there is to see.  I carry my phone/camera with me just in case I see something interesting.  Here are a few of the pictures I captured in June.  I hope you enjoy them!

a hill I climb on one of my routes

Mama and chicks
football/ soccer anyone?

3 kids in a Turkana "playstation"

floppy eared goat

GPS station for planes flying over Turkana on the way to Nairobi

someone's home

cute kiddies playing in the road

jump rope anyone - or is that sit rope?
can you tell the sheep from the goats?

weaver bird's nest

down the hill I go

sometimes the way is rocky

most of the time it is sandy with evidence of many who have gone before me

I enjoy my walks and the chance I get to greet other people.  I hope you have enjoyed these few pictures from my June walks!


  1. Nice pictures! And I know how to tell the sheep from the goats. :)

  2. since you have been here and live in Kenya usually, I would expect you to! :) The pictures are fun to take but it is sometimes hard to see anything new that I think is interesting.

  3. Thanks for sharing these. It's nice to see your "home" and the beautiful smiles
    of the children
    I'm in agreement with you about the reading. Yes, you want to push the young people to progress, but the joy of reading is important also. I love to see people reading!.
    May God continue to bless you and your students. Kathy Hammonds

    1. Thanks Kathy! I'm hoping to do a bit more with them over their school break in December.
