Slow-motion something

Update: The New York Times published its first account of some negotiations between Kibaki and Odinga. It also gives an horrific account of a church burning in western Kenya that killed 18 to 50 people. Gettleman sounds like he’s getting more pessimistic about the situation.

The Economist published an article about Kenya with a fair amount of analysis today. The New York Times is also keeping pace. I still have the impression that all the players are still trying to decide what they will do, and so the situation (relative peace or relative war) remains undecided and precarious.

The Kenyan researcher at my research camp emailed today that things are fine so far at Koija and in Nanyuki, though supplies are running out in town.

As for me, I don’t know yet if or when I will be returning to do my research.
