My Wanderings

Favorite Links

The following is a list of useful links that I had posted here up until 2005. I'll put more relevant ones up soon.

Favorite Africa Related Sites
See live pictures from various wildlife parks in Africa. You can occasionally see a lion or elephant at a watering hole - how cool is that?
Get climate and weather info for Africa and the rest of the world.
The weather forecast in Conakry, Guinea.
Great site with loads of info on Guinea and life as a PCV.
Jessica Lovendale, a fellow Kenyan PCV, started this site from the U.S. and has been working on it at Malaika. It's still a work-in-progress but some info and pictures are on it.
My guide up Kilimanjaro has started his own travel company. If you're thinking about vacationing in Tanzania, check out this site.

Favorite Travel Related Sites
Rick Steves' Europe Through The Back Door (ETBD) site has lots of great travel links so rather than re-type them all, I just included this link. Why re-invent the wheel? FYI, I use his guide books for all my European travels and would never leave home without selected ripped out pages. TIP: never take an entire guide book with you, just rip out the pages of the countries or areas you'll be visiting and toss them away when you're done.
ETBD's tips page
This is another great page on Rick Steves' site. It gives tips for everything from packing to transportation.
Pretty good currency converter.
Translate words, phrases, or entire web sites into different languages using AltaVista's Babel Fish translator.

Happy Surfing!
