Cannon King Walking With Africans July 2014

July 3rd

- Thursday, July 03, 2014

My name is Cannon, and I'm an Intern from the University of South Carolina.  I will be updating this blog as much as possible to keep all of our WAF (Walking with Africans Foundation) friends in the United States up to date on what we're doing. I'll try to keep it a bit lighthearted when I can, but will also be sharing some of the stories I get from some of the micro-finance groups in Kibwezi. This is our first attempt at blogging, so bear with us as we work out any kinks. 

Currently, we just touched down and the culture shock is immense. The people talk in strange accents and use a new form of currency I have never seen before. Fortunately our layover in this British airport is only three hours. So far the trip has been good.. My body hasn't quite yet figured out the whole time difference yet, but the flight attendant on the last flight assured me another 9 hour flight will get me straightened out. Getting increasingly excited for my month ahead, and looking forward to meeting some of the people WAF has been working with.
