When we arrived at Kangemi Youth School, the headmaster, Simiyu, greeted us very friendly with a big smile on his face. I was staying at Simiyu’s home with Emil. The apartment was very small, with very small windows, through which however no light came in, because the neighboring buildings were very high and swallowed the light. The only light was the electric one, but that was not reliable, because it was out from time to time in irregular intervals. Then only the flashlight remained. The toilet was outside, at the beginning I was only allowed to go there if someone accompanied me and waited for me in front of the door. The same applied to the shower. The room and the drain were the same when showering and when going to the toilet. There was no running water in the apartment. The apartment had one bedroom for Simiyu and his wife, a second room with a bunk bed for the two younger children, but which was cleared for Emil and me, and a living room. The kitchen was a small niche in the living room with a hotplate, about half a square meter in size. The bed had a very thin mattress and instead of a slatted frame there was only a board under the mattress.
