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.

"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.
