1. Botswana A dirt road....

    Children walking on the outskirts of town.

  2. Botswana Camels

    Camels in the Kgalagadi Desert! Aren't they adorable?!

  3. Botswana Beer Bottle Decoration

    Some individuals and establishments are finding creative ways to reuse and recycle.  This lodge used beer bottles to decorate around plants.

  4. Botswana Rondoval

    A traditionally-built house.  Today, there are more modern concrete houses than the traditional huts in many areas of Botswana.

  5. Malawi Hauling Firewood

    These hardworking men would ride their bikes out of Mzuzu and towards Chikangawa to get firewood. They would push the bikes up and down huge hills back into the city to see this firewood for pennies.

  6. Malawi Damali

    A neighbor girl age 3. She was terrified by every other mzungu except me. It took her quite a while to warm up to me though.

  7. Malawi Making galimotos

    The boys in my backyard molding mud into toy cars and trucks after a rain. My yard was a playground and I loved the laughter that was ever present.

  8. Malawi Collaring Eles

    Peace Parks came to Vwaza to collar elephants. It was amazing to sit next to this sleeping giant!

  9. Malawi Impatiently Waiting

    Mangoes in the tree behind my house. They take forever to ripen and I couldn't wait to sink my teeth into them. I had to keep a vigilant eye on the children who liked to eat them green!

  10. Malawi Peace Corps Feet

    I sent this home and my family was mortified, not because of the dirty feet, but the unshaved legs!
