First East Africa Jump Rope Competition

The competition yesterday was great. Today, we just finished day one of the three day workshop. The kids won't stop jumping, many going nine hours today. And all the kids - from six cities in two countries - have tightly bonded: jumping, teaching and relaxing together. I wish I had time to tell you more. It's just going to have to wait until I can post some pictures. More to come...
