Back From Africa!

Wow, we’ve been gone for three weeks in Africa with Margee, and it was a heck of a trip. Jessica and I went to Kenya and Rwanda, which was our first time in Africa.

We visited the offices, schools and projects of GlobalEyes, did a couple of safaris (including one on bike), stayed in the Hotel des Mille Collines (of ‘Hotel Rwanda fame), saw some incredible and moving Genocide memorials, saw the gorillas (of Gorillas in the Mist fame), visited Rwandan ministers (of State), schools and universities, witnessed a Gacaca trial, and got some Congolese art. It was a truly incredible trip.

We took over 1800 photos (more than 6 gigs), and about 10 hours of video footage that I’m currently going through. I’ll be posting some mini documentaries on YouTube and hopefully CurrentTV soon, but for now, here are some of the Flickrized photos from our trip!
