I have recently been going through my belongings... packing, sorting, and preparing to sell. It is fun to see what old memories lie in the boxes stored in the garage. Here are some pictures of my busy, tedious, and productive packing process.
First, I found Indian clothes I got on travels during college and had to try them on. For those of you who have seen or worn a sari, believe it or not I remembered how to put it on (sort of).
Second, I found some Chinese clothes I acquired while living in China and had to try on this dress my tailor made me (with shoulder pads!).
As you can see, my packing process has been very constructive. It makes me wonder what kinds of African clothes I'll add to my collection. Maybe jewelry?
Or a fun dress?
I am looking forward to shopping in Nairobi markets and wearing bright, beautiful colors and patterns (with an American "Kim" twist of course). Variety in clothing is one thing I love about other cultures and countries - new worlds of fashion to explore!
