It was great to have them here! We played games, shared stories, showed them around, and dumped our kids on them. :) Always nice to have visitors...and especially visitors from home who are also living in Africa! We wish them good luck on the Kili summit in days to come.
We often joke around here that we are in "Little Ann Arbor." Between the McCropders and now the Popps, and all of our joint visitors, there are often close to 20 people from not just Michigan, but specifically the greater Ann Arbor area of Michigan here at Tenwek. This happened again this past week. Friends of ours from Knox, Eric and Keri Dziuban, were in the area and "swung by." Eric is currently a pediatrician working with an AIDS clinic in Swaziland. Keri is a special ed teacher working for the Swaziland Ministry of Education. They are currently (we hope) halfway up Kilimanjaro. Because Tenwek is relatively close to Kili, they stopped in for a three day visit before heading south to Tanzania.
