Southern Sudanese are building like there is no tomorrow! It really makes me very happy to see them working so hard to literally build their country. I have heard however, from dad mostly (if not totally), that most of the construction just started as the independence loomed. It does make me a little disappointed to hear about this procrastination, since they had many years to prepare, but I hope now that the gears have shifted for good.
How would you describe the attitude of the international community towards South Sudan after five moths of its existence? Are we witnessing the positive, but also the negative efforts? Few comments by experts.
Yesterday we went to Konyo Konyo Market.
Konyo Konyo is very large. You can find almost everything you need there. We didn’t go into all the sections though because we were hot and were somewhat on a time crunch. We went to purchase: toilet paper, a razor blade, hair extensions and a mop.
First we walked through a line of blacksmiths.
The beautiful sunset in the mountains of Nelspruit in SOuth Africa. One of the many things I love about South Africa are the sunsets. No matter where you watch the sunset, there is always an inspiring, heart-warming, reassuring silence about it.
Maybe it's on your bucket list. Maybe you want to raise money for a good cause. Perhaps you're a young adult touring the world looking for adventure, or a senior citizen hoping to prove that you're not over the hill yet. Whatever your motivation, you have decided to climb Kilimanjaro. Now what?
Kilimanjaro is one of the world's great mountains; it's the highest point in Africa and the highest free-standing mountain (not part of a range) on earth.
I love a good documentary. Africa is also pretty high on my interest list so the combination for me is irresistible. If you are the same and love to find out about inspiring people then I highly recommend Jane Goodall.
