Tanzania — 2010-2011
Djibouti/Kenya — 2014-2018
Kids, kids playing football, kids chasing roosters. This is every day growing up in Djibouti. Entrepreneurial little humans always ready and willing to relieve you of your excess pocket change.
The Afar regard themselves as one ethnic group, but geopolitically their population of about three million is divided among three countries: Ethiopia, Eritrea, and Djibouti.
What photographic representation of East Africa is complete with a few animals? Although Africa is so much more, and so much more surprising, there is an undeniable magnetism to these majestic creatures.
One of Djibouti's simple pleasures is visiting one of its handful of beaches. Whether its Khor Ambado, Douda Plage, Turtle Island, or Arta, a dip in the Gulf of Tadjoura is soul enriching. Not to mention the world class snorkeling and whale sharking.
Also known as pétanque, the French counterpart to the Italian bocce is played nightly in an area known as the garden and throughout the city. For 20 franc you can try your luck against Djibouti's best.
There’s a decent chance your cup of tea started here.
