The intersection between Traditional & Bio-contemporary Healing

BOTSWANA | Monday, 3 Mar 2014 | Views [279]

When I proudly mentioned to Kopo that I was on my way to meet with a traditional healer, she was shocked and informed me I shouldn't tell people that's what I was going to do. As if it's a dirty, little secret she shares with me the taboo surrounding ... Read more >

Madikwe Game Reserve

SOUTH AFRICA | Sunday, 2 Mar 2014 | Views [204]

The day was spent at the Game reserve on the South African side of the fence. Wow, how lovely, dangerous, and exciting the wildlife is. Tendai from Maroon Tours picked me up around 10:30am, entertained me with his life's story and the entire day was ... Read more >

I woke up to the sound of rain drops and what I thought were pigeons but instead were monkeys. Rain, rain, rain! I definitely didn't want it to go away. After I ate the breakfast Ma Margaret prepared for me, I headed out for a walk. I had intended it ... Read more >

The Journey to Botswana

BOTSWANA | Monday, 24 Feb 2014 | Views [399]

When I woke up around 4:30am on Friday Feb 21, 2014 in Glendale, I was stricken with anxiety/panic over the fact that I'd be taken off to Africa for 3 weeks. I began hyperventilating as the shuttle rang they were there to pick me up. As much as I was ... Read more >
