An African's Anecdotes and Accoutrements

Footprints dividerFootprints dividerFootprints divider Footprints divider

Elspeth Huxley, author of "The Flame Trees of Thika", once wrote:

"Africa is a cruel country; it takes your heart and grinds it into powdered stone - and no one minds."


She's right.

Nzou the elephant and her herd of buffalo at Imire January 2008

I was born in Zimbabwe, and although I've been away from that country since August 2003 my heart will always belong to Africa. Regardless of the politics the continent is a beautiful, wondrous place, unlike any other on earth. No matter where I live Africa will always be home to me.
