Penduka And Planeterra, Teaming Up In Namibia

Penduka And Planeterra, Teaming Up In Namibia.  I have been fortunate to spend time volunteering overseas in Armenia, Thailand, and Tanzania.  The lesson I learned is that I received much more than I gave.  It is an overused statement, but that is because it is true.  While I was volunteering and attempting to “give back”, I [...]

Namibia is not necessarily the first country that comes to mind when you consider visiting Africa.  For many travelers, countries like Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, and Morocco are often the first to visit on this diverse continent.  But, by not including Namibia you are missing one of Africa’s true gems. Through these 20 photos I am [...]

Two Nights Niger

Two nights Niger.  I wasn’t overly excited about my brief trip to Niamey, Niger.  I arrived late at night to the Diori Hamani International Airport via a direct flight from Algiers.  I passed immigration without any obstacles except for a brief argument with a gentleman who tried to cut the line.  As I waited for my [...]

Burkina Faso Road Trip

Burkina Faso Road Trip “Uncle Paul, do you know the capital of Upper Volta?” a cocky 12 year old quizzed his elder. “Upper what?” Uncle Paul responded, perplexed with a dollop of indifference. “Ouagadougou!” the proud 12 year old responded, hitting each one of the syllables.  The brash pre-teen of course was me.  At my school, [...]

Bardo Museum-Must-See

By |2019-07-06T12:50:32-05:00June 27th, 2017|Categories: Africa, Must-See|Tags: , , , |

Bardo Museum-Must-See.  I have a theory on museums.  My rule of thumb in most cases is I only visit world class museums like the Hermitage or the Louvre.  It can be depressing visiting underfunded, poorly managed museums.  So I knew when visiting Tunisia, I had to visit the Bardo National Museum.   The Bardo is the second [...]

Tiebele Painted Houses

Tiebele Painted Houses.  The truck grooved down the fairly-well graded dirt road.  The windows were rolled down, orange/brown dust poured in.  There was no AC.  It was well over 100 F and I was covered in a permanent glaze of sweat.  I was in southern Burkina Faso, near the Ghana border, heading to the painted village [...]

Timimoun, Sebkha Circuit, And Sahara Desert.  The bus rolled to a stop.  Sand danced on the bus’s window.  “Timimoun, Timimoun!” the bus driver’s assistant hollered.  I grabbed my bags and pushed my way through the crowds and exited the but station.  A lone taxi driver waited.  “Bonjour monsieur, je veux aller Ksar Masine Hotel.”  My 10th [...]
