Bull Jumping Ceremony Part 3:
Once the women have shown their love for the man of the hour, the final step before the actual bull jumping is to get the blessing of his parents and the village elders. This was the only part of the Hammer tribe ceremony where tourists weren’t allowed. Fairly fierce looking characters with Kalashnikov rifles ensured that all outsiders kept their distance for this crucial part of the ceremony. Once the blessing was complete the young man selected a bull to be his totem and then the jumping could begin.
I took a trip to heaven.
And I’ll never be the same. .
The salt flats of Bolivia were covered in half an inch of rain, reflecting the perfect cotton candy clouds and blue sky. It was endless. I have so many more pictures from this magical place to share! 🇧🇴🇧🇴🇧🇴🇧🇴🇧🇴🇧🇴🇧🇴🇧🇴🇧🇴🇧🇴🇧🇴🇧🇴🇧🇴🇧🇴

Ethiopian Coffee Ceremony Part 2:
After roasting over coals, it’s grinding time. But, instead of a nice, easy, plug in grinder, the beans go into a wooden mortar and get pounded away to a very fine grind with an iron rod for a pestle. So much more effort but the smell is amazing!
Lake Nakuru National Park was our last game park for Africa and what a cracker! Flamingos, rhinos, lions, hyenas, giraffe, the list goes on. Very chuffed we made a quick stop at this beautiful spot in southern Kenya.
Driving around Lake Turkana in Kenya’s far north west took us along some of Africa’s most isolated roads yet most beautiful countryside. Loved bush camping in the middle of no where with nothing but the African bush for company.
