Peace!

Peace! I let the children wear my sunglasses at the orphanage and they let me take photos of them. I would tell them to do different poses and now have a bunch of photos of the different kids doing fun things. After taking the photos I’d show them on my camera and they would all laugh. It was a lot of fun. When I get back to the States I’m going to print out these photos and send them to the kids so they have a photo to hold onto. This one is probably one my favorite photos I’ve taken on my trip so far.

The Most Beautiful Sadness

The Most Beautiful Sadness My chameleon color is white…This experience is something that cleared the slate, the moment on my trip that really got me thinking about square one. This opportunity made me think about life and myself in a way that I’ve never been challenged. There are too many to emotions to express my feelings for Malawi that it makes it hard to put into words. The landscape and lake are pristine and absolutely breathtaking. The people are friendly and the children’s smiles are infectious. On the other hand once you learn about the conditions they live in it will break your heart...

Naming Conventions

Naming Conventions Photo of a local’s shop…his name was Samuel L. Jackson. It’s funny because many of the locals in Malawi chose name that were pretty hilarious. The one that specially sticks out is a guy named Cheese On Toast. There was also a guy in Tanzania who introduced himself as Cockroach. I asked him if that was his nickname and he told me, “No, that’s my real name.” There were a ton more but I’ve already forgotten…I believe the Canadians have a list which I’m going to have to ask from them.

Jon’s Shop

Jon’s Shop Photo of me with Jonathan, a local who I commissioned to paint me a Malawi style painting depicting my near drowning experience in the lake. If you were wondering the painting looks ridiculous but is AWESOME! You’ll have to check it out for your self when I return.
