Dear K-lee i hope that you are fine. Thank you very much for asking. I think aletter must be on the way. Let me confirm with the office who your Rafiki Is and when she wrote to you. I will write again with the infomation

Thank you


Hello K-lee

I hope you are fine

Have you received your rafiki letter? Please let me know because our records show that a letter was sent several weeks ago



No. I am so sorry. The letter has not arrived. l called the post office here and checked to make sure it wasn't sitting around somewhere. She said it should have taken no longer that 7 days to two weeks to get here. I lam hoping it will still arrive. I'll let you know when it does.

Thanks for letting me know so I could check on it. K-lee 3709

Well I received a lovely letter from a woman in Nairobi the other day. I had actually forgotten that I had signed up and so couldn't log in! But I have now rejoined and very happy to be here. It was lovely to get my letter and I looked at the photos that MamaAfrica posted of the Nairobi Rafiki and imagined that my new friend might be amongst them. Even if she wasn't it was nice imagining what it was like as she wrote to me. I am off now to write back!

Love and light
