Photo Of The Week: Mozambican Children

 Photo of the Week, where each Wednesday I’ll be spotlighting a different photo from my travels around the world.

This weeks photo is from Beira, Mozambique.  After spending a month in sparkly, modern South Africa, Mozambique’s feeling of being “a step behind” was more than welcome.  It was the Africa I had been waiting for.  One day I was lucky enough to visit a village way out in the sticks.  This village had to have been what inspired Disneylands Jungle Cruise.  We’re talking grass huts, dirts paths, animals.  But what stood out the most were the children.  Always excited to be in a picture, and with giant smiles on their faces who could resist?

Photo Of The Week: Township Tug-O-War

Each Wednesday I’ll be spotlighting a different photo from my travels around the world.

This week my photo is from Plettenberg Bay, South Africa.

I’ve always been one of those strange people who believes I really do have the ability to change the world, even if it’s just by changing one life.  So when I travel I don’t just like to take in the sites, I like to do something positive, like by hosting a sports camp for the children in the New Horizons Township in South Africa.  A community only a mile from the beach and literally across the street from multi-million dollar vacation homes, yet it feels a world away.
