Ravena, short, quiet and less outgoing, is said to be great at getting the most for her money. She, apparently, is the best family cook, and is currently working on a degree in microbiology and doing research for various companies, including the Kenyan and German governments. Their welcoming home was well-arranged and attractive, had several couches and pull up tables. We were feted with typical Kenyan food, served buffet style. After dinner we were treated to a tour of their yards which features a wonderful vegetable garden, various trees and plants, including bananas, mangoes, papayas, and Kanana’s grave site which is covered over with many flowering plants. Fridah is an animal lover and speaks fondly of her various dogs, which includes a new litter of seven puppies.
