A Kenyan bbq in pictures (16/10/14)

My father and his wife, Beth, are here visiting for a week, following Dad’s successful summit of Mt Kilimanjaro.  Seriously, does this man set a high bar for 65 year olds or what?

We threw a nyama choma (Kenyan bbq) to celebrate their visit and introduce some of our friends and colleagues.  Apologies to those whom we did not get around to inviting; it was a chaotic lead up to the choma and I forgot my own name there for awhile.  Rest assured you were there in spirit.

We hired a local mpishi (cook), Joseph, to prepare and cook the goat for us.  I was not prepared for how cute the goat he brought was.
