After the first night in the hotel, Dr. Arnold took us to the dormitory of JKUAT. The dormitory is very large and equipped with a stove and a refrigerator.
The foods in the canteen are also delicious. I enjoy the food here. Their main meats here are beef, lamb and chicken. Legumes are also indispensable in their daily diet.
