On July 14, 2012 at approximately 7:12 am Nairobi time (10:12 pm the night before in Colorado), this is what I saw outside my window… the dead of winter in Nairobi, Kenya.

Crops growing and near harvest, fog on the Ngong Hills, and the apartment cleaning and security staff washing someone’s Lexus and Isuzu (blast from the past)…. this is “dead of winter” in sub-Saharan east Africa near the horn.

Now interestingly, we will compare this to the “dead of summer” in January, and I suspect we will see almost the same thing! School students, why is this do you suppose?
