Africa on the move

A few pictures of my recent travels. Some of these are from a hike. Others are commuting to and from Arusha. (I live a few miles south of the city, in the country.) I also recently took a twelve hour bus to Dar es Salaam and back, which was a great opportunity to view the country side. The images that look like a Van Gogh painting were taken out the window of the bus as the country side flew by. I was surprised by the quantity of beautiful mountains and green vegetation. Lots of green everywhere. Small villages were all along the way, filled mostly with small huts constructed of strong sticks and mud…..Lastly, I couldn’t help but include a picture of Obama Biscuits. Two thin cookies with chocolate frosting between them. Sorry about the bad focus, but the bus kept bouncing around. I ate all the biscuits, but they tasted terrible. =)

Writer. In the summers, I live and work in the incredible state of Alaska, in the bush community of McCarthy; I pass the winters in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California. I'm working on a memoir-based nonfiction book on the American Dream. I blog, quite frequently, and I also have a novel in process, set in Alaska.
