Siwa Silver

I haven't seen rings like this in Cairo before but apparently they are the new fashion brought in from Siwa. They come in plain silver but are painted with enamel paint in Cairo.

...means "women" in the Bambara language. I visited a vegetable garden project in Zelabougou, Mali and everywhere I went one common theme manifested itself in the outskirts of Bamako and beyond; women are everywhere and women do most if not all the work. Most women I spoke with had 7 kids on average, tended the land and ran the household. Some worked other jobs beyond that. I was told all the man was required to do was provide a bag of rice to his family each month. This huge workload doesn't stop them from pursuing the hope of providing a better future for their children through education.

Friendly Face

A bus driver in Bamako, Mali exchanging pleasantries while we were stuck in traffic. Doesn't he have the kindest face? I hope the unrest in Mali comes to an end so its good people can live on in peace and dignity.

Through any weather... matter how much snow, you will find a few brave swedes defying sanity and riding their bikes. I don't know if you can see this father further up the road actually pulling his son on a sleigh using his bicycle. Lance Armstrong eat your heart out. Stockholm, Sweden.

White Way

A blanket of snow fell over Stockholm, Sweden covering everything in white. In Sweden people often say: "The good thing about snow is it brings more light." A very "half full" attitude indeed. Personally I can't wait til it's summer!
