The alarm went off pretty early today. Time to wake up. People are waiting for me at Shisong’s Cardiac Centre. Bij, a 7 year-old little girl, is about to undergo surgery.
I enter the locker room and wear scrubs, a white coat, mask, and clogs. I have everything with me. The chance to witness an open-heart surgery firsthand won’t happen again. I take a deep breath and enter the OR.
Surgeons and assistants are coming and going, getting ready for the surgery. The room is freezing cold, I…
We’ve been driving through the Omo Valley for many days now and we really feel like we’ve been thrown into the past. Every person we meet, every village, every ethnic group looks like it belongs to an indefinite, faraway time...
Our jeep is chewing up the kilometers. Suddenly, we see a large group of people that look very upset, shouting and pushing one another.

The archaeological, ethnological, and geological characteristics make the Bandiagara escarpment one of West Africa's most impressive sites.
Several peoples such as the …
Here I am on the Congolese border. Congo is waiting for me in this cold and humid dawn.
Me and the others are off to the Virunga National Park, all boxed in the car, two hours of road ahead of us.
Tension sets in as soon as we’re divided into groups. Each one will look for a different family of gorillas. The rangers give us some useful advice and then we’re off, backpacks on, cameras ready. The long trek begins.
