About the Book
Originally published as a travel blog, A Guy in Kenya is a real-time reflection on ten weeks spent in rural western Kenya during 2010. Author David Watterson reflects on his experiences, interactions, and observations while conducting a public service project on behalf of the international nonprofit organization, Kijana Educational Empowerment Initiative.
Watterson's writing and photography offers an unassumingly delightful look at Kenya's breathtaking natural beauty and the energy, warm spirit, and resourcefulness of its people. While avoiding the temptation to sugar coat humanitarian challenges, Watterson portrays Kenya and sub-Saharan Africa as he sees it - a place rooted in rich culture yet constantly moving forward.
