p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Africa in my blood, Africa on my mind - B&W and color


Congratulations to kdacharya for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 11 votes - View Previous Winners


Jane Goodall's book, Africa in my blood is how I feel about my birth continent.
I was supposed to go to Kenya in May 2020, but the gods and Covid had other plans.
Here are a few images that I took over the last few trips, that I look back and think about. As usual C&C is appreciated.

Wow, what a great collection of images. I have been to Uganda three times and Kenya once. My daughter founded a non profit to help children in Uganda and even adopted an orphan from Kampala. He is one of the highlights of my life. Like you my Plans to return have been put on hold. Can't wait for my next trip. Bruce

If anyone needs to send things to Kenya, I use a shipping company here in the US that gets things there hassle free and through customs. I send my son a ton of things this way. He has toys that everyone is jealous of!!! Send me a PM if you would like to know the name of this company.

thanks Bob, and yes I was born in Kenya, but grew up in India for the most part. I was in Africa, off and on, until I was 7.
