A Family Vehicle for Africa

As we prepare for departure, it is always enjoyable to learn new details about our living situation in Nairobi.  It’s comforting to know that, besides leaving everything behind here in the states, we also have a new home and a new community waiting for us on the other side of the world.

This past week I spent a little time researching vehicles suitable for our large family, because that is one of the first big purchases we’ll have to make upon arrival in Kenya.  In America we drive a 12-passenger Ford E-350, but for Kenya the Toyota Hiace 14-seater is looking like the most promising option.  In the picture, note the location of the steering wheel!
