A beautiful poverty

MALAWI | Thursday, 7 May 2009 | Views [922] | Comments [1]

After a sad farewell to Maasailand and my amazing host family, i jumped on a plane headed to Zanzibar. The plane ride was more like a bus trip. The plane begins in Kisumu, in northern Kenya, and flies to Nairobi where it drops off a few people, picks ... Read more >

First Impressions...

KENYA | Saturday, 21 Mar 2009 | Views [1148] | Comments [1]

Preparing for this "trip", I began to think of certain luxuries, and everyday decisions we are faced with, and began to wonder if they exist where I was going. Not because I hoped they existed, but more so a curiosity of the unknown. Simple ... Read more >
