Kpime Falls

I was wondering if I could use your photo
hi. I'm currently working an child book editor at a MIRAE-N ISEUM in South Korea, and my name is chaiwuk um. I am conducting a new project concerning world flag-card for chilren. There is a flag image on the front and a photo and introduction of culture on the back. but we couldn't get the any photos about kpime falls in Tunisia. I found your blog, while searching a porper images and I was wondering if I could use your photo. The photo will be used to make a the reverse side of card. The URL I want to use is I thank you in advance for your assistance in this comment and look forward to hear from you.

Adrianalna, thanks for your kind words and for taking the time to read my Namibia/Botswana blog. Etosha National Park is so full of wildlife that even I can snap a few good pics! If you get a chance to go, I highly recommend it, especially around August-time. Best wishes, -Lu-

Thanks for your response,
Hi Lu-san, thanks for your fast response though you'd be busy for your day life, I'm glad to see your kind answer. And still kind of cold here, but I'll leave soon or, may have to leave untill Aprill I think, and I hope I'll not fall down on the mountanous road of Kochi or anything as some cold meat no one'd find it untill the next year... haha. Yes, it is a joke, but actually, just recently an old pilgrimage master who had been devoting to put so many signs and coner-stones on the henro-road for more than 30 years, was very sadly to be found as a coarpse in the mountain, just after missing for a month, he may be slipped from the road and froze in this winter weather, truley sad and reported in here Shikoku newspapers. Then, I myself would be careful too, and also have some respect and pray for many people before down on the road. And then, also thank you for recommending to the Ritsun Park or Udon, etc, yes we love it here and proud of it. (But once you have to eat those Udons some Three Times a day in a hot summer day, you may start to hate the noodles....yes, it is just like rice or miso soup here, we'd die once we lack'em even once two days or something!) About blogs, I'm not making any about my journy still, but I have a facebook page and write some about Japanese Shrines and Temples I've traveled (but mostly I've written about historical knowledge, not so much about my own travell experience), then hope you'll check some day after I write about my 88 pilgrimage. OK, now I have to go, thank you so much for your response and help from your diary too, Arigatou-Gozaimasu. Shuji

Shuji-san, thanks so much for your message and for reading my blog. It is wonderful that you will be going on your own pilgrimage - ganbatte kudasai! I am sure you will have an amazing experience. I hope you keep a blog, I would love to read about it. I hope one day to return to Takamatsu - the Ritsurin gardens were so beautiful, I would like to see them again. And then of course, there is the udon! Best of luck with your journey, -Lu-

Respect for your Henro diary
Hi Lu, Hajime-mashite from Japan, I feel very glad to find such a great diary about Shikoku 88 henro, especially from the view of forign people with a great interest and joy of travel. I am a Japanese male, native in Kagawa, Shikoku and O-Daishi-San and 88 henro have been very familar and respectful to me since my childfood, and my house religion is also of Shingon and belief in Daishi. Then, it'll be great that recently many people from abroad are also trying to have a nice experience and understanding of pilgrimage and buddhism. And actually, I am a Japanese and also native in Shikoku, but untill now, I've never tried this great pilgrimage before, and just recenlty I've succeeded to collect all the packings and clothes for it, and now ready to leave for Daishi soon. ( so, strangely I may have to learn a little from your diary about it, haha...and the reason I wrote my comment on this page, is because I'm still ready to leave, and not after Kechi-gan still, have NO right to commnet on your kechigan page....). Anyway, it was a great joy to read your diary and see pictures here, truely great. Hope I would have a wonderful experience too, and have some enlightment from gods and bodhisatvas on the road waiting for me. Shuji Minato (Kagawa, Takamatsu)

Beware of looking at a Gambian map!
Travelling up the Gambia river by road is bound to be a recipe for hot, tiring, dusty frustration. Compare your experience with that of sailing silently up-river on Africa's first solar-powered boat - the "Solar Queen", thus avoiding the hassles of public ferry crossings and clapped out, dangerous bush taxis. It's like chalk and cheese. One costs a little more, but tastes a good deal better! You already have the ingredients at your fingertips - a quick Google of "Hidden Gambia" will find you the method.

Thanks Ian for your kind message. I bet your trip from Cape Town to Sudan was incredible, I hope you get a chance to write about it on travelblog so I can read all about it! The Western route is tough, it's true, because you need to pass through many more countries, and sometimes the major complication can be aquiring the visas. However, it's an incredible journey. I would be very happy to give you any help/advice I can offer. Do message me with any questions. Very best wishes to you, and thanks for reading my blog. -Lu Barnham -

an african alphabet
A great read and it was of great interest for me as i am planing to do that journey 2011, I traveled from Cape Town to Khartoum Sudan this year by public transport, solo, and stayed at backpackers, i am 75years of age, i completed the trip in 9 weeks, with out any any health or bad incidents, my research and reading your blog, it would be more difficult to travel down the west coast, i have been traveling for six years, and clocked up 53 countries, i wish you both well, and keep on traveling, With Kindest Regards Ian. PS if you have any time to spare to advise me if it would be to hard for me.
