My African Photos

Welcome Readers,
I hope you have enjoyed reading Learning to play with a Lion's Testicles as much as I enjoyed writing it.
In response to your requests, I have included some photos here of my African adventure. If you haven't read the book yet, I recommend reading the book first to allow your own imagination to paint these pictures before viewing my original photos. 
If you've ever dreamed of going to Africa I can promise you it as just as amazing as you think it may be and volunteering will ensure your adventure is purpose-driven.

Go For It!
