Within the first week, I visited the home of one of the students and stayed there for a couple of days, visited the apartments of several students, and before I knew it, I already had a fixed schedule, where I had to go to table tennis practice every evening, and in the morning on Sundays. I felt at home, when home couldn't be farther away.
House parties are very common in Africa within the student community. By Friday evening, everyone would make plans for BBQ, or, if you happen to be a vegetarian like myself, sit in a corner and have fun with whatever you could eat. If you are a foreigner, students go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. I had been to at least a dozen house parties during my time in Kenya, and everyone of them was different - fun in their own ways.
