Photo: Aru village in DRC at dusk

I was in Aru, a small yet buzzing village in Province Orientale in Democratic Republic of Congo near the Sudan border, in order to train agronomists in giving better plant health advice to farmers in the surrounding areas. The people are adorable and made me feel very welcome and safe. The outskirts are always lively in the evening, particularly after the rains and during Easter Sunday. Here I was just ambling along the main road near my hotel, and the colours and vibes were very relaxing. I later in the evening watched, filmed and eventually participated in a Michael Jackson tribute dance to Smooth Criminal...!

Photo: a full moon in a game reserve in Kenya

At a workshop in Naivasha, next to Nakuru game reserve in central Kenya, we visited a small nature reserve near a lodge. Luckily we spotted a few animals before the sun set, and then we walked through the park at night. It was a beautiful evening with eerie moonshine. Realkly recommend going through that part of Kenya though. Slightly less touristy than the major game reserves in East Africa.

At a workshop in Naivasha, next to Nakuru game reserve in central Kenya, we visited a park in one of the main lodges in the area at sunset. Luckily we spotted a few animals before it got dark, and then we walked through the park at night. It was a beautiful evening with eerie moonshine, almost as nice as seeing the wild (ish) animals. A memorable moment. Really recommend going through that part of Kenya. Slightly less touristy than the major game reserves in East Africa.

In a beautiful wedding in Morocco, the ceremony was a cultural experience, the food was delightful, and the night entertainment was awesome, as you can see from this picture. This man was giving us a real show! He was extremely precise yet pulled off some incredibly daring moves! Hope you like the picture

Photo: a really cool grasshopper on cassava in DR Congo

While I was out doing an agronomist training course in DRC, I came across this amazing grasshopper sitting on a cassava leaf. They are considered a pest on cassava and can destroy a whole crop if they are left alone. As bad as they are to the farmers, these insects are pretty spectacular to look at!
