handstanding Africa!

In February 2014 I joined islanders Marsha Winsryg, Cia Bloomquist, and Rick Bausman for a two week trip to Livingstone, Zambia. We stayed and worked at a school for disabled children called the Mama Bhakita Center. Marsha taught art, Rick taught drumming, and Cia was our all around MVP, assisting with all phases of the program.

We did a quick trip to Botswana one day for safari, and took our lives in our hands in class 5 whitewater rapids on the Zambezi river! Of course, there were lots of handstands!
