> Turkanaland

>This dry, arid, desert region sits between the borders of Sudan and northern Uganda. From the air it is an endless landscape devoid of civilization until you look closely and see the small thatched huts dotting the landscape. On the ground in Lodwar we find a bustling town of 50,000 that is becoming a business center crossroads, with goods and natural resources coming out of Sudan. Just outside of town you are now in the “bush”. This is the Africa you see in National Geographic. And yet we found a man who has a solar panel outside his hut which is about 5 feet in circumference. Looking inside, he had a radio, light and, yes, a computer! Days are spent herding sheep, donkeys and camels or working in the community garden outreach. Susanne once again is obsessed with the camels, as well as the people.
