Today was one of those days that I did not want to be an off day. At first. It is Kenyan Independence Day. It means the country comes to a standstill. So much for getting any work done or having calls returned. Luckily it is also Italy's Republic Day. As I mentioned earlier I am now living with 4 Italians and another American. It not only means that dinner is top notch, but that you get invited to said Republic Day celebrations at the Italian Embassy here. It's a welcome relief to drink wine and have a good meal a day after sinking waste deep in what felt like an ocean of sewage while working on a recycling story in the country's largest dump. Opposite ends of the spectrum.
