It's been two days since I got the flu. I'm very low on supplies especially water so I decided to go to the supermarket to buy some stuff.

I also don't want to infect other people with … Continue reading Got the Flu and my trip to the Supermarket
Last December 2017, we decided to travel to Kenya from Uganda by bus. I took some videos and compiled them to a vlog. Check out my Kenya Travel Vlog here. Thank you!
Two years ago, I wrote this blog post about my near death experiences in Burkina Faso. I got sick with Malaria, missed a coup d'etat and a terror attack. That's why this photo is very important to me. Malaria changed me. I borrowed a couple of paragraphs from that post but you can always check … Continue reading Through the Lens: Malaria in Africa

I'm starting a new blog series entitled Culture Shookt. Basically it's a collection of things from Uganda that got me shookt. For my first entry, I’ll talk about cannibalism and witchcraft in Uganda. Okay, let's make things clear. These are just accounts from the people I know here in Africa and in no way verified. … Continue reading CULTURE SHOOKT: Cannibalism and Witchcraft in Uganda
Well not really because I believe what I have doesn't need any fixing. Also, why fix if it's not broken in the first place. Okay. I'm lost with that train of thought. Five months ago, I got the chance to attend a Coldplay concert in Taiwan. Why did I end up in Taiwan you may … Continue reading Coldplay Fixed Me
