MEMORIES OF AFRICA

Anyone who has ever been to Africa will have experienced the contrasts of a continent beautiful and wild, charming and mysterious, dirt poor and dazzlingly rich. My family was born and raised in South Africa, the largest economy in Africa, home to the world’s most...

Feels like home (Episode 27)

Who said Zambia was all about the Vic’ falls, the elephants or the leopards? Well it’s a lot more than that: its people are incredibly welcoming. They opened their arms and doors for us. We felt like we were home.
Forenji! Forenji!

Forenji! Forenji!

After some cultural enrichment at Lalibela, Shea and I headed toward the Sudan border. We’d heard news of riots in Northern Ethiopia but hadn’t thought much of it. After all, we are young enough to still be invincible. The view from Lalibela. Bubbles on the way down....

After a day of relaxation with Chris and Jenny, Shea and I decided to make a short venture north to Murchison Falls. We also managed to convince ourselves that it wasn’t much extra effort to take a four hour detour first to the equator to capture that elusive equator...

At school with the orphans (Episode 25)
