MONGOLIA – Photographing the Kazakh Eagle Hunters – Finally Mongolia

Saturday Dec 5, up at 5:00am, can’t sleep any more.  Waiting.  The next scheduled next flight to the west is tomorrow.  Admittedly, a day in Ulaabnbaatar is a good opportunity to regroup.  A last-chance to catch-up with family on Skype and tackle some

MONGOLIA – Photographing the Kazakh Eagle Hunters – To Ulaanbaatar

Early to the airport again today: gear humping, Carnet process and additional security screening for lithium ion batteries. Our Ulan Bator flight is on-time.  Starting to see (more modern) versions of the faces I’ve studied for a year now in my research.

Africa Diary – Day 5 – Nailing the Hamer!

At 3:00 a.m. I awaken, aware of two things; the sounds of Ethiopian Coptic Chanting, and a seriously screwed-up lower back. Before I’ve finished breakfast Mr. Fix somehow has managed to find me a massage therapist. Much improved by her

AFRICA DIARY – Day 2 – Chomping at the Bit

Ouch. I literally pry myself out of bed.  I’d tweaked my back while doing a deadlifts workout the day before travelling – that, plus 36 straight hours of cramped travel, hurts! The shower is a bucket of cold water over
