About Lilti

Toronto, Canada
I haven't been to the continent of Africa in 4 years. That was far too long a break. =)
In February 2011 I'll be in Ethiopia for three weeks. Three short, short weeks.
So this blog of my experiences on the continent will be resurrected.

Please don't judge my old blogs too harshly.. I just went back and read some of them. I was so tempted to edit things! Change how I wrote about certain situations or described a particular experience. But I won't. 
I can judge my four year ago self.. but you be nice to me!

Since the days of those travels I've officially founded that non profit I was looking to get up and going.

Turns out that founding an organization takes a LOT of work.
So I've been home in Toronto.
A lot.

At last though.. at last, a brief voyage awaits.
