Awesome photos, love the aerial photos of Massai bomas. It reminds me my first fligth with precision from Dar to Moshi (when I arrived in TZ for the first time). I remember seeing them from the air and I getting real scarred thinking that I was gonna live in a real bush in the middle of no-where! Ha ha... I didnt even know where Moshi was when I sighned my contract, i just wanted to go to Africa.

As for volunteering, I always look with utmost admiration at people who dedicated their time and energy to helping other people without expecting anything in return neither from the poor nor from the rich. Nowadays, people go to East Africa, West Africa or East Timor, volunteer couple hours and then write a two-volume (4000 page) book describing their heroism. Disgusting! At the end of the day their "volunterism" was the source of their business venture. What's more all these TV "stars" get involved with that for their PUBLICITY and that pisses me off. As much as I respect Angelina Jolie's acting, I don't understand why her refugee camp visits get so much attention, whereas the names of the doctors and nurses you mentioned are NEVER acknowledged anywhere. If Jolie didnt mean to get any publicity out of it she would have found the way to make her refugee visits discreet. Where there is will there is a way!

Thanks for sharing the photos!
