Elephants in the Grass

Archbishop Tutu Asifiwe, Bwana Asifiwe... Praise them both! This morning's email brings a more hopeful message from Maseno:

Dear Dianne,

Things seem to be getting back to normal. Troops are patrolling the highway Busia-Kisumu and escorting fuel trucks to the border. So that is good news. Archbishop Tutu has apparently managed to persuade the two elephants to stop trampling the grass. We'll see.

Much love,

Dear Nan & All,

We continue to pray for peace in Kenya, safe travel for all, and for food and gasoline to become available. I know I could be of very little use if I were still there, but I wish I were... All I can do from here is obsess over the BBC online news and console myself with two thoughts: (1) Desmond Tutu is in Kenya now, and (2) mine is at least one less mouth for Emmah to feed.
