Rwanda Genocide Memorial Visit

One of the themes on our trip to Rwanda was to change the impression of Rwanda from “Rwanda the Genocide Country” to “Remarkable Rwanda.” And while that has certainly happened no visit to Rwanda is complete without a visit to the Rwanda Genocide Memorial. It is very moving. Especially when you realize that 250,000 people […]

Rwanda 2017 Part 4: I am on African Time.

Rwanda here I come – eventually.  I am three hours late taking off (I keep forgetting I am on African time).  But when I land the fun and excitement begins.  As we get off the bus at the terminal I am talking to a guy who does medical work in Southern Sudan.  Just before I […]

Artistry in Beads

In the Cape Town area there are many amazing crafts people. But no visit to Cape Town is complete without a visit to Monkey Biz. Started in 1999 this non-profit business pays women immediately for their incredible beaded work and requires every artist to have a bank account where money is deposited and providing economic […]

Cape of Good Hope

During my stay in Cape Town I took a beautiful ride down the coast to the Cape of Good Hope. I really enjoyed standing there at this historic point (though I would have loved to have been in a kayak) where many believe is the southern tip of Africa. This point is where the currents […]
