1. Fiji Ice Cream Soup

    The children are swarming around Filo who is dishing out melted ice cream at a church picnic. The ice cream was brought from the nearest grocery store across the Somosomo straight on a hour long fiber boat ride. By the time it reached the island it was totally melted - but the kids didn't seem to mind!

  2. Mozambique Bubble Bonanza

    Blowing bubbles with neighborhood children.

  3. Bulgaria "S'more" Doesn't Translate

    On a hike this past summer, I introduced my kids to the joy of a campfire necessity - s'mores!

  4. Bulgaria In house dance party

    On a stroll through the Roma Quarter/ghetto to visit some students, I was able to catch this dance party going on through someone's open kitchen door. 

  5. Togo Toys for Toddlers

    Who wouldn't think of a hoe as being a good toy for a three year old?

  6. Bulgaria Fun on the ice

    The local municipality donated three free 1-hour sessions on the winter ice rink to the kids at our Roma middle school in the Samokov mountains - the "Capital of White Sports"

  7. Bulgaria Celebratory Horo

    The Roma middle school in Samokov, Bulgaria celebrates the national culture holiday last May by dancing the Bulgarian folklore horo as a school. 

  8. Dominica Coconut Tree

    I never understood how Dominicans did stuff like this with such ease (look closely and you'll see a man up there).  It looked to me like they were climbing small skyscrapers sometimes.  Great to have a guy like this around when you are thirsty though. . .

  9. Dominica Layou

    On a trek down Dominica's largest/longest river, the Layou, we got this great photo of a friend from the village doing a backflip off a sandbar.  He was fearless, and did stuff much crazier than than this on a daily basis.  40 foot jump into a river from a tree?  No problem.  This was a great hike though as we were completely stuck in nature for several hours, just trekking the river.

  10. Ecuador Earth Day

    To celebrate Earth Day with my kid's art class, we decorated little plastic cups filled with small plants.  Many of the kids kept their plants alive at home for several weeks!
