I need to start uploading more photos. So here is the dusty sunrise as seen from my schoolyard the other day. We are in the middle of the dry season now and it hasn’t rained in 6 weeks or so. This coupled with the dirt road beside our school means a lot of dust gets kicked up. Not good to breath but it sure does make for a nice early morning photo.

Si Said was a leather artisan with a business in the Marrakesh Souq and worked at the orphanage for boys handicapped with polio. He taught the boys how to make leather shoes and other leather projects and was committed to helping them find jobs so they could eventually support themselves. Si Said was a friend and co-worker who supported the Peace Corps mission and values.

"I think these photos sum up the Peace Corps Aquaculture Program, in that by teaching people how to raise fish they are able to provide themselves with a sustainable protein source that can increase health."
Peace Corps Agriculture Volunteer Chris Kelly, who served in Zambia from 2001-2003, helped his community build these fish ponds to help introduce more protein into their diets. The child holding the fish is most likely suffering from Kwashiorkor Syndrome, which is a severe protein malnutrition that affects children.
