In Kenya this summer

Primarily, I was affected by the people that I met this summer and the way that the IU-Moi University partnership "leads with care", as they so often say. I also, of course, fell in love with the land and its animals. Here I am one weekend in the Masai Mara on safari.

and with a baboon in Nakuru – another area that has experienced unimaginable violence. It’s hard to believe that not long ago it seemed like a more peaceful place. Of course, as a visitor, I certainly did not have a fair idea of animosities brewing beneath the surface.
