It is believed that the Sumerians invented the manufacture of simple pottery, and the arrival of skilled earthenware craftsmen exiled from the Iberian Peninsula in the 17th century embellished the manufacture of pottery in Tunisia. Tunisia's distinctive ceramic heritage includes swirling floral designs in blue, green and yellow, separated by thin black bands.
[photo opp] the kids at the orphanage memorized my name, and on our last visit, kept calling out to me to take photos of them in different parts of the compound. at one point, there were as many as 30 calling my name. i instructed them to get in a worefa, or single file line, and took their photo. i’m leaving ethiopia with a full heart, knowing i made these children happy, if by nothing, then by taking their photo for them to see. next stop: washington, d.c. bye, bye, ethiopia, it’s been real! ✌🏽🇪🇹🛫

How long is long with African land and sea journeys?
I originally set out with a plan of travelling 5 hours from Bissau to Bubaque but the sea had other plans. With the tide going in and out at extreme heights, by 9pm the boat was stuck on a sandbar leaving us no other option but to set up camp on the fishermen's pirogue. We slept through the night until 2am where the tide pulled back in and finally we were on our way arriving on Bubaque at 5am...almost 14 hours after my original departure time in Bissau.
It left me with the experience of developing paitence, a full sky of uncountable stars and back pain but I wouldn't replace the experience for another - the view was worth the wait.
Blessed Friday to all! We had a very cool road trip experience with some travels from Portugal who rented a car & wanted to explore Senegal & Gambia. We ventured to a beautiful vista called #poponguine in Senegal & visited some small fishing villages. #adventure#africantravel#seaside
We took a Specialty Coffee Master Class with @questioncaferw to take our coffee geekiness/snobbery to the next level. Question Coffee is a cafe and roaster that works to improve the lives of rural, low-income women coffee farmers through training and market access, in partnership with the Relationship Coffee Institute. I probably would have enjoyed watching the coffee farmers go through the class even more than doing it ourselves. By training the farmers they are no longer at the mercy of the coffee middlemen that come to farms and can offer $100 for coffee worth $1000. Question Coffee helps eliminate the middleman altogether in a direct trade model. The highlight was definitely crafting my own coffee blend, and the ingenuity on display in sealing coffee bags with a hair straightening iron. Next time we will go on the full tour and visit the farms.
Question Coffee has a USA online store for my American friends. .

Hassan Tower is the minaret of an incomplete mosque in Rabat, Morocco. Commissioned by Abu Yusuf Yaqub al-Mansur, the third Caliph of the Almohad Caliphate in 1195, the tower was intended to be the largest minaret in the world along with the mosque.
At the Pilanesberg Game Reserve in South Africa, it is a rare opportunity to spot a fight between two bull giraffes competing for dominance. Male giraffes use their long necks as weapons in dominance battles to win the right to mate with females.

Two of the very few products I brought along with me to #SouthAfrica because blond hair never gets a day off from revival. I ordered the @gisou by @negin_mirsalehi hair oil and texturizing spray right before coming and I’m so glad I did because it is DRY in Africa right now. Anyone else have a favourite hair oil or spray that’s nice and easy for adventure travel they would recommend??
