Planet Earth

Soooo I was playing with google earth a little too much recently and discovered you could make videos...and then I discovered I could upload a link to it and share it with the world! So anyway, if you are interested in seeing a lil satellite fly-in view of Children of Zion Village, Merry Christmas! :-) You can get to it by either clicking on the following link or pasting the url at the bottom of this post. Once you get to the page, simply find the black "Attachments" title (near the center) and click the first link below it (it will just be a bunch of numbers.kmz). That is the google earth video file.

The main building in the middle is the actual children's home with the middle part being the large central area and the 2 wings off the side being separate living areas for the boys and girls. The rest of the little pins around it are just a couple of key spots around the compound.

Please Note: You must have google earth in order to view this...sorry :-/

And Random Sidenote: I will be speaking at my church (First Baptist Church of Perryville, MD) about my trip this coming Sunday, June 27th, at 6:30 PM if anyone is interested. Directions can be mapquested at 4800 Pulaski Highway, Perryville, MD

New videos from this past year have finally been posted. Videos include a wide range of things; everything from what hippos and elephants sound like, to traditional and Kwaito dancing, to acapelo African youth choirs, to what bushman "clicks" sound like (Khwedam), to just kids being kids. You can view them by clicking here or on the link to the right. Click on the titles on the right to see more in those categories.

If the link doesn't work, copy and paste the following

Mufasa Picasa

I have finally posted pictures for anyone interested. Sorry it has taken so long, but in my own defense I had to sort through a whole year's worth--for me meaning 10,000 of them. Things such as Christmas, sports, traditional festivals, an African wedding, animals, girls nights, village visits, the Mafuta feeding center, the flood, travels, and, of course, the kids! All this and more can be found at my Picasa site. Enjoy :-)
