I’ll Posted by africraigs in africraigs | Dec 24, 2014
  • LAWell a long flight but we all got a decent amount of sleep. It was quite strange walking around Brisbane saying that as of 1 hour ago we will be in LA, all due to crossing the date line. Nice Posted by judges29 in USA & Canada | Dec 6, 2014
  • Cling To Life Hold on for dear life, it’s a term that can mean a great many things. Sometimes it means just keep trucking, things will get better. At other times, as you actually grasp the roof of a Posted by 19jenny79 in A Long Road | Nov 7, 2014
  • Cross the river in a crowd & the crocodile won't eat you...==‘It was the best of times and the worst of times...’== … okay, slight exaggeration, but to help distract from a recent bout of homesickness I had planned a little afternoon tea-party for my birthday. We’d been busy making our Posted by africraigs in africraigs | Oct 31, 2014

  • Shoulders hunched, head lolling, eyes averted...They say that our body language (facial expressions, gestures and postures) accounts for 55% of how we communicate our feelings to one another. It’s incredible that in this case, what we actually say accounts for only 7% of how we Posted by africraigs in africraigs | Sep 10, 2014
  • The Journey is the Destination Living in the now, it’s a cliché, hell it’s a cliché world we live in. It’s also a world where happiness is always an object over the horizon. It strikes me as slightly farcical that we Posted by 19jenny79 in A Long Road | Sep 4, 2014
  • Try the TransportAs a white person in East Africa, I have some remarks on the way public transport works here. Of course, back home buses go on schedule every ten minutes, we have no traffic jam and even if you don´t know Posted by Freedomlane in East Africa | Aug 21, 2014

  • The Spirit of DeathIt has been a strange time in Arua these past couple of weeks. In fact, so many people are dying here that the local Anglican Diocese have been praying against the “Spirit of Death”, whatever that might mean… It seems Posted by africraigs in africraigs | Jun 30, 2014

  • Safari - day 8-10: Gorillas and back homeDay 8 This was probably the most exciting day of the whole safari and such an incredible experience.

  • My last week at the hospitalThe hospital officially opens at 8 am, I think... This is when patients start arriving and queuing at the different departments. But the staff usually arrive somewhere between 9 and 10 and start working within an hour of their arrival. Posted by Elisebuiter in Africa | May 13, 2014
  • Boundaries in LugbaralandCultures are fascinating, but it is only when you come against a different outlook and way of seeing things that you realise how differently you think. I realised this even more after doing a ‘culturally inappropriate’ devotions for staff at Posted by africraigs in africraigs | May 11, 2014
  • A quiet week and the hospital pharmacyMonday and Tuesday I was sick and stayed at home. I was coughing badly, I had a runny nose (Do your feet smell? Does your nose run? Then you're built upside down!) and a bad headache. Though I could have Posted by Elisebuiter in Africa | May 5, 2014
