I am so pleased you took a moment to stop by and read about my adventures. Please bear with me as I work out the kinks and attempt to figure out this new blog platform.
As many of you know, I am leaving in one week (July 1st, 2010) to take a grand adventure across the ocean–to Africa! A long time dream of mine, I truly can’t believe it will be my reality! I will be working with the NGO Invisibile Children, in Gulu Uganda, from late July-December and doing photography for a start-up safari company in Kenya. To learn more about Invisible Children, please visit their site: www.invisiblechildren.com.
My timeframe looks a little something like this:
July 1-4: Fly from Raleigh/Durham to Philadelphia to Brussels to Nairobi, Kenya. Staying with old, dear friends, the Van Praags.
July 5-20: Meeting with buddies from Durham, NC, Abe and Joseph, who have been at the World Cup. We are going to (attempt) to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, explore Zanzibar, travel to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and…who knows what else! If you have ideas, email me and we will explore!
July 20-26: Back in Nairobi.
July 26: Fly to Entebbe, Uganda, and meet Andrew, the Communications Officer for Invisible Children, who will drive us the 5 hours north to Gulu, my new home.
July-Dec: Working for Invisible Children, in Gulu.
I will be adding photos and video to this blog at least once a week, so be sure to check in frequently!
