Me and my new Malagasy friend, Vonze, by Lake Victoria (on my 30th birthday!!!)
Impulsively visiting a boarding school -- where I was drawn by the laughter and the local music. The children stole my heart -- they were so curious (mostly about my straight black hair), happy (yet sometimes shy), and open.
They taught me how to dance the Ugandan way and sang for me. Best birthday ever. (Later, my new friends took me to the local bar -- 4 Turkeys -- where I, and another friend, were propositioned by the local prostitute -- but that's another story)
Me and the kids. Love them to bits!
I met Mr. H. too
That is, the monkey we're both posing with. i.e. Inspiring plush toy that follows Jane Goodall whenever she travels 300 days out of the year..
And saving the best for last...
