The days are just flying by and Njiro is starting to feel more and more like home! Aside from occasionally not having power and every once in a while no water (land lord issues), everything is good! I went with Jim out to a Maasai farm where they were trying out conservation agriculture techniques along with a planting method in bags. It was nice taking a break from being in the city and spending a day where the only thing to hear is tall grass and corn stalks brushing up against each other in the wind.
To gain a better understanding of the milling process here, I took another field trip, aka a 45 minute walk behind our house, to find some local mills in a nearby village. We were trying to get a good grasp on how long maize is soaked before being processed through the machines and if it made a great difference if the kernels are dry or not when they enter.
For now with GCS and Twende, I've been gathering information on all of their products and projects, planning out what tests I can run, and have started writing a grant with Jim for his animal powered battery charger project.
