A weeks ago, Isaku and I popped by Zidane to see how he was doing. Although it had been a while, he was still as cuddly as ever! Already 1,5 years old, this colt is growing up to be a beautiful stallion! I still can’t over how big and masculine his head is! As for [...]
We’re in the middle of the beautiful rainy season here in Niger, and almost every day, we are spoiled with beautiful skies. Not a bad ending to the day to come out of the office facing this… Of course, the drop in temperature makes the dogs prance about all the way home, initiating their canine [...]
Left to right: Sahara, Arwen, Ronja, Daya & Sheba Like Sheba says; “The more the merrier!” Anybody else out there who’d like to join…? The two hour long ride ends with a cool bath in the closest seasonal lake, which offers cold but muddy water for anybody who likes to get their paws or hooves [...]

My dad and I were out riding in the Midik area just before the rainy season had kicked in, when we rode past these a pair of girls harvesting palm fruits to sell. Nature’s Pantry offers a wide selection of foods that is very important to local households in Niger. For some reason, however, these [...]
We are in Mauretania; we came in the day before yesterday and hope to cross the border to Mali tomorrow. Have slept the past two nights under open sky. +47 degrees right now. Could arrive in Niamey on Sunday night!! Will post pictures of an awesome journey as soon as I can…
The car was finished yesterday, the night was spent packing and finally we are off! If all goes well perfect, we should be in Tunisia on Sunday and in Niger sometime… soonish! Will post you updated whenever I can!
On Monday morning Taiwanese time, we took the plane to Seoul, then to Germany. Finally!!! We are now be heading north to Sweden. Will update you as soon as I can!
We’re having Internet connection trouble. It comes and goes all the time, making it impossible to upload pictures. Most probably reason? Clouds in the air (=potential rain storm). The chances of rain however seems to have passed, for now, but it’s late in the afternoon over here and so the Internet will probably not be [...]
…is Jojo, the family’s pet monkey (not ours). Anette took these cool facial shots of him when we were there last, and I just had to share! He’s bit me twice already and will be having some goods removed soon (I have yet to meet a male monkey who did not suffer from serious megalomania!), [...]
During the siesta today, I was watching the opening ceremonies of the Bejing Olympic Games 2008 on Tele Sahel, when all of sudden Niger walked by! I’m not exceptionally heavy on patriotism in any particular direction (Sweden, Norway, Niger, Africa, Europe, where would it land?) but the pride I felt seeing them there was poignant. [...]
Yesterday, I came over a picture that Anette took on our street a few months ago. It was a bit blurry, but when I saw that smile and those gorgeous eyes and chubby cheeks, I just fell in love with the little girl who flashed them so generously. She did not seem to mind the [...]
