Our camp the first night on Mt. Kilimanjaro.  That building in the distance is the toilet.

Me at Uhuru peak, the highest peak in Afica.

Coming back from the peak.

Us with all the guides and porters...

The four girls with our guide, August.

Summit day sunburn.


Raw Cinnamon right after its cut from the tree.

The big moon happened on Zanzibar too.

The streets of Stonetown, click on the picture to see it bigger and you can see the walls bowing in.

There are a lot of really cool doors in stonetown, I'm unsure of any cultural significance.

This building used to be a private hospital but was renovated in 1994 or something. Beautiful.


A fort.

Pan in Dar Es Salaam.


I thought this building was attached to a building that Freddy Mercury grew up in.  It didn't, we found it later.

And this is it.

Mercury house.

Genuine excitement.

Bri's lunch.

Look up at the poles keeping the walls from bowing.  These buildings don't age well because of the materials they're built with combined with the harsh weather and constant sunlight.

Bees eat dates.


Shark scewer?  Tuna?  Octypus?  No problem!

Octypus, muscle, chipati for dinner.

This peacock escaped from the statehouse and was not having an easy day, people kept taking its feathers for jewelry.

Street calamari.

Street food near the fish market in Dar Es Salaam.

When you buy an orange in Dar es salaam, they peal it for you.


Bri and I in the cab on the way to the airport!

Sunrise through the sand in Doha, Qater (taken from inside the airport).
