Munyonyo, Uganda, 2003
Goats are not exactly born racers. They are followed closely from behind with a large banner, and run more or less neck and neck the whole way around. The winner is the one who happened to be a little more nervous than the others at the approach of the finish line. But it's a great excuse for food, drink and socializing.

Mount Elgon, Uganda, 2003
To take a walk in Mount Elgon, even for day hikes, you are required to be accompanied by armed park rangers, who protect against poachers and bandits as well as whatever few rare wild animals might remain. But the ranger said the park has been quite safe lately.

Okaukuejo, Namibia, 1997
Etosha is the focal point of Namibia for most tourists. It contains an enormous number and variety of animals, but the subtle beauty of the plants and setting might be overlooked.

storage area, Bobo Dioulasso, Burkina Faso, 1996 storage area
Bobo Dioulasso, Burkina Faso, 1996
Houses in Burkina Faso are built of mud, stone or straw. This mud village was relatively traditional, and there were many locations for sacrificing animals. To get to this village, I rode on the back of a small motorcycle. I also toured a stone village on a hill and a pond with giant sacred catfish.

Many trees take on a monstrous, grotesque appearance, twisted by some unknown combination of wind, weather, animals, people and spirits.

"tortoise, Prison Island", Zanzibar, Tanzania, 1995 tortoise, Prison Island
Zanzibar, Tanzania, 1995
Prison Island is a short boat trip from Zanzibar town. There we saw the ruins of the prison, swam and snorkeled above the coral reefs. It is easy to find these large tortoises on the island. They move very slowly; the big ones must weigh over 200 kg.
