Fight Night Africa

Fight Night Africa

On a peaceful plain somewhere in Africa there is a dude antelope just hanging out and not being chased by lions. For once he thinks he has a moment of peace, away from the drudgery of being chased by his predators. He would look something like this.   However,...

Birds of Nakuru, Kenya

Birds of Nakuru, Kenya

Birds are great. But I've never known any personally. I do know that life feels better when there are birds around. Sure, the crows and seagulls can be pesky. But yet they are entertaining too. The birds of Africa are of a style, grace and number that I've...

Nakuru, Kenya

Nakuru, Kenya

Like many of the places I have been through since arriving in Africa, Nakuru is a place I had never heard about. By the way, that's a ridge of the Great Rift Valley, just behind the Rhino. These photos are once again the product of me listening to someone who said...

The Humble But Mighty Dhow

Me too. I didn't really know what a Dhow is, was or will be. But the small boat called the Dhow has arrived and departed the east coast of Africa for more than a thousand years. These little boats still work hard (of course it's really the people on board who...

Murchison Falls, Uganda

This is a special place in northern Uganda where the Nile River passes through a gap in the rock of just nine meters. The result is a torrent of African water that no one at any time could pass through alive. It is the most ferocious piece of water I have ever seen....

Chimp’s Nest, Uganda

That's the name of the rather cool place I stayed while visiting Kibale National Park in western Uganda. For example, here's a photo of one of their rather famous tree houses (at least if you read Lonely Planet). When up there you are eye level with lots of...

Jungle Walks, Uganda

Jungle Walks, Uganda

While working in Uganda I had the chance to make a couple of escapes. One of those was into Kibale National Park in western Uganda. It is most famous for it's many primates, especially chimpanzees. But I liked the feeling of being in such a dense, forested place....

Zanzibar

Zanzibar

Few names evoke the sense of exotic the way that Zanzibar does. It's competitors are, perhaps, Timbuktu, Tahiti, Serengeti, or maybe Istanbul. I have no recent photos of those places. But these are thoughts and images from a trip to Zanzibar, which is a mix of...

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.
