To Arusha snake park

A travel blog entry by jbknorris

The school director, Emmanuel, kept saying, “God bless you for what ...

... It might not seem like much, but the smiles on their little faces, and the requests for high fives after I first started doing it, tells me that it means something to them. During recess, they all run to me, wanting me to let them hang off my arms as I curl them like weights.

I took a break after the first week, and embarked on ...
