Updated 12.28.2010 (and again 12/26/11)
So I didn't make it through the complete list since what I thought would be two years in Kenya/Sudan ended up being a five month experience, but below is an updated version with pictures of each completion.  Most fun I've had trying to accomplish resolutions.

Kenya 2010: The List
