So the pictures above of the people dancing were taken in the village of Kawawa. This village is one of eight villages that take part in the Hombolo Hospital Community Health Education Program. The program tries to help spread awareness about identifying Leprosy, HIV, and other STDs through songs and performances. In these pictures the villagers are singing a song about the dangers of HIV in a rural community. The pictures of the baboons were taken at the Ibihwa Vocational school, where at meal times the students leave out food for the baboons. The Baboons descend from the surrounding mountains on to the campus to eat the food.

    Hi Brian,

    These are great photos. The trees and weather seem very different from home. It is grey, cold and damp with some rain here in NY. I am going to sell tress after church. Hope you have a nice Sunday too.

    Take care, Mom

    Hi Brian-
    I have been meaning to check out your site. It must be SO different to be there in December than in NY. It’s great to see the pictures. I’m sure the trip was very long – I’m not great on long plane rides. Keep us posted on your work and travels.
