A Picture is Worth A Thousand Megabytes of my Limited Data…

Since I don’t normally post pictures on Facebook, for a variety of reasons, I thought I would throw a little photo-blog post together so the family can check out what my life has looked like over the past month or so. Like I always say, “pictures don’t do it justice,” but it’s better than sitting here writing about everything. I’m only one man.

Images from the UDHA-led outreach event to Serinyabi Island in Lake Victoria. Two teams of GHC Fellows and friends headed out to 2 islands over 2 days, lobbying the local government with petitions and demonstrations to improve (read: create) health care outreach services on these hard-to-reach islands. Props to Heather and Sam for organizing!

My friend Brooke returned from the USA where she went on national med-school interview tour…and brought us back some long-awaited IPAs. Dogfish Head 90 Minute Imperial IPA. I couldn’t stop smiling as soon as it hit my lips. MMMMM.

An image from Lacey’s time at Burning Man 2014. I post this because plans are in the works for me and a small crew to attempt the ultimate regional Burner event – AfrikaBurn – on my birthday next year. Unbelievable…more posts to come on that…
