My boyfriend is frowning at your second photo, and asking why anyone would take a photo of that to post on the internet. But, pay no attention to him John. It is just penis envy. :D

Great pics...
Great photos as always. Your photo 'Elephant Dobber' made me laugh - it reminded me of a safari I went on as a child when my younger brother thought the elephant was having a baby and the trunk was coming out first!

The joys of cross-border bus travel in Africa
Isn't it interesting how the most mundane of experiences at home - such as a bus journey - transform into tales of colour and adventure when travelling abroad! It is surprising how much attention (and not necessarily of the complimentary type) you receive being a Mzungu in this part of Africa.

beauty without toxicity
What beautiful buildings and they were built without posioning the environment and out of indeginous materials. Maybe architect Frank Lyoad Wright learned something from Akbar?

Great history lesson
This was an amazing piece of writing- not only for your, as always, wonderful descriptions but for your clarification of the the genocide and warring factions. I am sending it to several young people who are very interested in African studies. Hopefully they will realize that the problems are deeper than buiding a sandbox at an orphanage or sending care packages to a a penpal. Carolyn

Toasted sandwiches instead of cold sandwiches...
well the explanation for that one is easy...it disguises that the bread is ever so slightly stale of course! We've enjoyed reading your Africa blogs, although the travelling sounds like very hard work...we know exactly what you mean about obnoxious groups grrr!

You're very brave. I doubt I'd have the guts to do that. I'd just read your blogs and view the photos!

Cat on a hot ... oh, you know
The full saying is: "busier than a cat trying to bury shit on a hot tin roof." Now not a lot of people know that;-) (you still think the caption is accurate?)

Blurry shots
Thanks for the positive comment - however, among others, the cheetah fur photo is blurred. Fine at this resolution but I won't be able to blow any of these up :-( We were right next to the lions when I took the lion shots, as in RIGHT next to. Great for me - not sure how the lions felt about it though ...

Zoomed-in shots?
I didn't see any blurry shot......in fact, your photos are absolutely good! Like those 'rear' photos. Nice one, john. But I just had to ask how far away you were when you took those lion shots.

Refelcting on your Khawaja experiance
Well, with all of the experience you have been through in Sudan, I wonder you did not mention something about how do you feel the place, the culture and the like. you merely centered your topic around people been way to sleazy to you as a KHAWAJA. After all it depends on what purpose you travels were intend to; as I have read several blogs and KHAWAJA friends experiences in Sudan and they mostly of a diverse nature: meaning they are not all just too terrible though. I personally agree with most of what you said, but outta curiosity my questions raised that any GOOD SIDE OF IT? in peace, Emam
