Elvis is alive and now living with us on The Shire.
A few years back we met an English couple, Matthew and Michelle Barrow. They have been coming to East Africa for 20 years, and during that time rescued several street boys. Most of whom have now finished high school and are looking for the next phase of life. Elvis Kira (above) is interested in agriculture and has come to stay with us for this year. As we are learning to farm he will be as well.
Ours was a seemingly unlikely friendship, The Barrows and The Brooks, that is. They are a few years older than us, more conservative, English, and follow the rules more often than we do. Yet we continue to find ourselves together, and I usually don't hide when they come over. Now we even have one of their boys staying with us.
Hopefully with Elvis and Michael (our farmhand) we will be able to produce a good amount of food this season.
