    Some say you haven’t seen a real sunset until you’ve seen one in Africa. I always thought this was silly until I saw my first African sunset. It blew me away.

    Would love to go there one day… probably because of a tv show I watched – based on a cool book – The Number One Ladies’ Detective Agency… have you heard of it? If not, it’s awesome and so funny.

      I have seen the book in the store but I haven’t picked it up yet. But you are the second person this month telling me that it is worth reading. I’ll have to look into it! Thanks!

  11. I agree, you haven’t seen a sunset until you have been to Africa! Beautiful!

    Amazing shot. First, I see your picture of Barcelona and now Africa…what is your job, anyway?

    • TBM says:

      Well I just left my job, but I worked at a University. I didn’t make a lot but we live pretty frugally. I’m hoping to find a job in London to I can continue to have fun.
