Many of you who read this site knew my trip was coming to a close. I did not announce it here, because I planned to surprise my mom before Christmas (she reads this site, but does not know how to use twitter or facebook). I got home last night and here’s what happened:
Future of the Site
I am very excited about what is going to happen with this site in 2011. I’m going to continue sharing music and stories from my time in Africa. I will also remain faithful to my promise of consistently delivering the most cutting edge camel drawing techniques. What’s on the agenda travel wise?
- Road trip from New York to Arizona
- A trip south of the border
- Back to Africa
Of course, none of this is set in stone. I will be trying to make money with a variety of means. Some of these I will talk about here, others in the email list (sign up on the right somewhere –>). As of now, none of them involve dealing drugs or selling my body.
For now, I will be getting caught up with a lot of things I still have not posted from Morocco, Mali, Cote D’Ivoire and even Ghana. To everyone that has sent me emails, comments, and camels, you have no idea how much I appreciate it. If you have not sent me a drawing of your camel or you are confused about what I’m talking about, read this post. And then send me your camel. I am almost at 50 camels, which means another $50 will be donated to Partners in Health.
Cote D’Ivoire Update
Faty and David, who I stayed with for nearly a month, are safe. I have been talking to them daily. Shelby Grossman has a good update on the situation here. Major American news outlets have done an absolutely terrible job reporting on the crisis.
Here’s to 2011 starting with a peaceful resolution in Cote d’Ivoire.
