  1. Incredible – I really want to go – we love Southern Africa, thought it was incredible. Your imagery is amazing as always. We did a walk with teh Botswanan bush people that was incredible

  2. I was at a Masai village in southern Kenya in 2014. Same road, same dung huts and same flies. The men told us they herd cattle and “think”! Women do everything else

    • Yes, it is so true Leslee. I learned a lot about the culture during my tour and took extensive notes. Some of what I learned wasn’t great regarding women and girls, especially the practice of FGM that still goes on. The women and children work so hard but the men have not really found much to do now that their warrior culture has changed. The young boys were the herders here while the men did lots of “thinking”.

    • Thanks Alison! Africa is a magical place and so unlike any place I’ve ever been. It is so huge and diverse. So many countries and things to see.
