06:14 pm - Basket weaving in Somalia
Whilst in Somalia, I did try basket weaving, under the guidance of this lovely woman who is a health educator in a therapeutic feeding centre. This is where people bring their severe acute malnourished children for treatment. Whilst the kids are getting treatment, mothers keep themselves occupied with weaving.

I think I'm going to buy a whole lot of yarn for them from Nairobi, and send it to Somalia. So that they can continue with their beautiful brightly-coloured baskets.

Current Location: Nairobi, Kenya
