People you meet in Eldoret

I figured out why I haven't seen any runners lately. The County Cross Country races are this weekend. All the distance runners, which is to say most of the runners here, are prepping and tapering for the big race.

So I went for a walk and took pictures of Kenyans in Eldoret (and two from another trip) instead.
