As hard as it is to believe, I’ve eaten far more ugali here in Cambridge than I ever ate in Kenya. It’s not that I haven’t eaten ugali before; it’s just that I’ve never actually lived in a house with so many Kenyan guys.
They tracked down cornmeal flour here, and we’ve eaten ugali and chicken almost every single night. Strangely enough, I’ve actually come to prefer it over rice. I guess I’ve become more Kenyan in Cambridge.
Three more days, till we head home – not soon enough to see our families; not long enough to finish all the research we need to get done before leaving.
