My sixth week in Western Kenya

... as a scientist it is quite difficult for me not to be doing anything or contributing to any work, and if at any stage I feel that way, I believe it is time to move on. Who knows maybe sometime in the near future once they are ready I can come back! For now I have made my suggestions and given my opinions in regards to some nutritional projects :)
