Philosophical & Spiritual

Maria Popova’s Brainpickings: a “one-woman labor of love — a subjective lens on what matters in the world and why. Mostly, it’s a record of [M.P.’s] own becoming as a person — intellectually, creatively, spiritually — and an inquiry into how to live and what it means to lead a good life.”

Things African



Music Time in Africa: “Ethnomusicologist and Host Heather Maxwell keeps you up to date on what’s happening in African music with exclusive interviews, cultural information, and of course, great music — including rare recordings from the Leo Sarkisian Library of African Music.”


Mulberry Mongoose (Kate, I believe) – I met her at a fair in Lusaka. I especially love her Chapters 1-3 on the move from London to the Zambian bush.

On travelling by Vagabonding Fitz, actually Greg, with whom I spent two great evenings in Liwonde, Malawi. 

Katchie Nzama’s (South Africa) blog about her travels in Africa. She’s one of still few black African travellers.
