PERU | Tue, 18 Aug 2015 | By sheree | Views [506]

Reflections of a Volunteer

SOUTH AFRICA | Sat, 2 Mar 2013 | By butterfly-freed | Views [607]

Almost a week without rain now and yet the sky has held promise of it today. Heavy dark clouds have rimmed the mountains around our valley, only to be blown away on the wind. The breeze is welcome but the heat of the last few days is beginning to feel ... Read more >
