The waters rise,
A few more inches,
and swamp will be our only ground.
crowd around the window
sneaking a peak
at what once was theirs.
In overnight hours
everything has changed.
Four pair of eyes
shine with trust.
Not a speck of fear
can be found.
Do we brave it?
Do we stay?
The little green wagon
has floated away,
the swings, the slide.
still to make.
Can we go?
Should we stay?
The waters rise,
And swamp will be our only ground. ~Mindy Johnston
Martha fietst een uurtje dapper mee in de hete zon. Maar het gaat niet echt vooruit. Niet omwille van Martha, maar omdat er overal barelen op het pad staan. Het is duidelijk dag ze hier geen mensen met fietskarren en BOBtrailers gewoon zijn! Bagage afladen en terug opladen. En als we denken dat we er vanaf zijn duikt de grootste uitdaging op: de rivier staat veel te hoog dus het fietspad onder de autostrade is overstroomd. Neeee! Dan maar weer alles er af en er onder door ploeteren.

The Education Ministry has directed heads of schools affected by floods in Nyatike to temporarily release pupils from class three and below.
Officials said until the situation becomes manageable, floods will continue to affect learning in several schools in the region.
Nyatike sub county education director Elijah Kongere told Radio Ramogi that this may not be the best move as pupils will be disadvantaged in terms of syllabus coverage.
However, he said those unable to access the school should stay at home.
Mr. Kongere said the ministry is monitoring the flood situation and will be taking precautions to avoid any disasters.
Meanwhile, over 300 families in Nyora and Kabuto area in Nyatike Sub County have been displaced by floods.The area Assistant chief Sospeter Oloo said many families were forced to vacate their homes on Tuesday night.
