    This man spends 6-7 hours a day in water with a salt content close to 40%. In order to protect his skin he rubs himself with "Beurre de Karité" (shea butter, produced from shea nuts obtained from the Shea nut tree), which is an emollient to avoid the skin to burn. The picture is taken in Lac Rose, a pink lake very close to the Atlantic Ocean in Senegal not far away from Dakar. Six days a week he manages to harvest about a ton of salt per day, which is loaded in a small wooden boat.

Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe The Victoria falls is 1 708 meters wide, making it the largest curtain of water in the world. It drops between 90m and 107m into the Zambezi Gorge and an average of 550,000 cubic metres of water plummet over the edge every minute.

Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe Africa! Africa! Africa! Why did they take your children and steal your gold. Enslave your babies and mine your diamons to wear around their necks, leaving deserts and malaise? How I wish that humans had treated you far more humanely than they did or do for that matter. I cry for you oh so very much.

Congo River adventures. Since Andrea and I have already decided that some of our life will be spent living in Africa, naturally we will be traveling the entire continent. And we will take a peak at this river for sure. :)

For centuries, Africans walked through the "door of no return"directly into slave ships. Nowadays, the portal of this fort so central to one of history's greatest crimes has a new name, hung on a sign leading back in from the roaring Atlantic Ocean: "The door of return." via
