My Mac has a new hard drive (whew!), so I can blog again ... with full facility. Here are the photos to accompany my post from Sept 4th. More to come.
This is the food I ate for six days while staying in the aid worker's compound in the refugee camps. As you can see, lunch and dinner consisted of white rice, beige rice, fried potatoes, stewed potatoes/carrots, mixed carrots/peas and the occasional carnivorous item.
Here's a shot of the UN airplane I flew in to both refugee camps. It looks official and important on the outside. On the inside, my tray table was held in place by scotch tape. Still, an incredible service.
This is one of the thorn trees which are the primary species in this part of the desert. They're beautiful, but also something out of a certain nightmare.
Camels. Cute, eh?

Here I am with a group of the amazing refugees who work with my organization, in the most challenging of environments. Inspiring.
