Africa Photos and Thoughts

As my suspected time on this mysterious continent winds down, I hope to gather a few thoughts and images in this piece. Frankly, I just don't know where else to store the photos, so they might as well be here.

This image from a museum in Tanzania catches the sad history of this place.

And these photos of downtown Nairobi show that life has moved on.

Yet life out in the bush is still grim.

Yet wrapped around that life of kill or be killed is a vast beauty.

That is diverse as it is large.

But even inside that beauty danger sits and waits for you.

Thus, Africa asks you at times to sit and think.

But these camels clearly have no concept about anything.

And after all you have seen you still have dreams to follow.

Just find a door and walk through it.


About This Place…

"This website is dedicated to the many people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo who have suffered and died."


The writer was a journalist, prosecutor, and Canadian soldier who is now trying to help the people who live in the DR Congo.


The photographs and the commentary here are solely those of the writer and his pet dog named "Bark." The United Nations and MONUSCO have nothing to do with this website.

Similarly, the township of Puskokum in eastern Tennessee is equally not interested.
