Photo: when the sun hits the right spot

My colleagues and myslef were visiting the border between Pakistan and India near Lahore. Everyday, there is a traditional closing of the border ceremony (more pictures to follow on this). I was sitting in the stands, shouting PA-KI-STAN at the top of my voice, and whilst looking around, saw that the spire of the border gates was struck by the sun in the perfect light. hope you enjoy the effect

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: Participatory action in Kabul, Afghanistan

When in Afghanistan, we were training some local agricultural workers in how to develop better messages for famers. We were in the agricultural research station in Kabul, called Badam Bagh, and we were interviewing farmers and asked them to comment on our factsheets. Their comments are invaluable in order to promote a consistent and understandable message for the farming community. This agricultural worker was doing an excellent job in listening to the farmer. He was concentrating very hard, and I find it makes a good photo!

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: Kids in the rain in Kenya

Took this picture while waiting for a rainshower to stop!

Wondering around the area of Kitale in Western Kenya, we came across a school lunch hour when we were actually doing some field work. The kids came out in droves and ducked for shelter during a heavy rain spell. We were in our vehicle and the rain just kept falling… Hope you like the picture. Over the course of the two days, we saw 1500 farmers and gave out vital information about a particularly nasty disease in Kenya on maize: Maize Lethal Necrosis Disease (sounds bad as well!)
