Jinja, Uganda – Lake Victoria becomes Victoria Nile River, source of the Nile River.

Two men fishing for Tilapia.

Standing at the source.

Chief of Jinja. Actually just a cow, but certainly a burly one!

Njabini, Kenya – Elephant Mountain –  Home sweet home.


Checking homework.

Climbing Elephant Mountain.

Dr. Suess was here.

A boy named Ken, who is a member of Basic Needs, an organization representing people with mental illness.  He has been empowered with the task of raising a family of chickens for the group, once his chicks hatch a portion of them will be given to another child with disability to rear his own.  The eggs supply the family with food and the responsibility of raising the chickens give the children purpose and a way to help both the family and community.

I hope you enjoyed!  More to come!

Love Always,

    Brian – Molly and I have really enjoyed your blog!! You are one hell of a fine writer. Hope that’s what you ultimately do professionally. It’s a talent you have in spades, and few do. The photos are fantastic and really help tell the story of what life is like there and how the people live. Nothing in the US can compare to it. Keep healthy! Hope to see you when you’re back here in August.
    Take care
    Spike and Molly
