In 2007 I went to Rwanda to see the mountain gorillas in Parc National des Volcans. It was a magical experience and one of my most memorable trips.

These are some photos of my 2011 trip to Somaliland. The first two are memorials commemorating the civil war in the early 1990’s. The camel market is in Hargeisa, the capital city of Somaliland and the final picture is of an abandoned ship in the Gulf of Aden off the coast of the port city of Berbera.

In 2013 I went to Vietnam with my cousin and a friend. We took a boat down the Mekong river crossing the border from Cambodia to Vietnam. We spent a little less than a week in Ho Chi Minh City.
