Where I Slept

I worked for USAID on a health care project in north central Mali, along side a Peace Corps physician. He was given the hut (seen to the right), but it was too hot. So, we slept outdoors at this spot, awakened at dawn by flies and a rooster.

Giroffe Reaching DOWN

Now the long neck is NOT an advantage!

In the Medina

You are immediately back to the year 1300. This captured on Ektachrome film in the late 1970s. I do not know how it is today. 1300? 2000? 1650?

Tannery Chouwara, Fez, Morocco

Thnomsen Gazelle, Kenya

Lucky telephoto - they are very skittish!

Tunisian Shepherd

As I approached this shepherd, he waved his arms wildly. I thought he must want me away from his flock. Turned out there are Roman underground caverns all around the field with small vent holes that one can easily fall into. I thanked him, showed him photos of my family and we were friends. Neither spoke the others language.

Water Bearers in Mali

They walk to and from their home and the nearest non-dry well... the water jugs balanced on their heads. Try it.

Patagonia, Torres del Paine

"Torres del Paine" in Spanish is the name of the National Park and also of mountain towers within this range of the Andes.
