Dreaming of Africa
 
03:45
In 1893, English woman Mary Kingsley set off on her first exploration of West Africa. Victorian ladies were not expected to travel abroad alone, especially to dangerous, unknown regions! Mary recorded her discoveries in the book 'Travels in West Africa'. She was the first person to climb Mount Cameroon, she studied Jungle tribes who were previously reported to be cannibals and discovered new species of river fish for the British Museum. Her book is a wonderful portrait of both her and the parts of Africa that she grew to love.

Despite the United Nation's eventual intervention, most of Liberia's young people continue to live in abject poverty, surrounded by filth, drug addiction, and teenage prostitution. The former child soldiers who were forced into war have been left to fend for themselves, the murderous warlords who once led them in cannibalistic rampages have taken up as so-called community leaders, and new militias are lying in wait for the opportunity to reclaim their country from a government they rightly mistrust.

The Royal African Society
 
03:09
The journalist tells the story of the world's leading organization for African affairs. Question: What is the history and mission of the Royal African Society?   Richard Dowden: The Royal African Society; it's just over a 100 hundred years old. And it was founded to take Africa seriously. It was founded by a mixture of academics and business people and it became an academic institution. And its journal, "African Affairs," is the world's leading peer-reviewed academic journal on Africa. I came in about 5 years ago and gave it some other programs. A political one, we worked in Westminster. And [my toll] with government, trying to get them to take Africa seriously and understand it. We worked closely with the African Diaspora in Britain, and with several other partners. And we, now, publish books which are not academic books, write reports, hold meetings. We run the London African Film Festival last year. We're doing some big cultural events for Africa at the end of this year. So its programs have really diversified but its core messages to get a better understanding of Africa and promote that better understanding.   Question: How do you negotiate Royal African Society's colonial overtones?   Richard Dowden: We did think about it and we couldn't come up with another one. It's very strange. In Africa, in West Africa, where there're a lot of kingdoms, they love it. The royal Africans have full of respect. South Africa, the opposite. They see it as; you must be trying to recolonize Africa. East Africa, it's kind of mixed. And in the end, we thought long and hard about it and we decided to keep the title because it does have a reputation. It had its very distinguished Africanist academic background. And it's a punch line, if you like, promoting Africa. A better understanding of Africa makes it clear that we're not about trying to colonize it. The person it was founded by, in memory of, was this extraordinary woman, Mary Kingsley. She was an anthropologist but she did some amazing travels in West Africa. She was actually very anti-colonialist in many ways. But she said, "If you're going to do it, do it properly." And her agenda was today's agenda, schools, education, health, you know, development, and treating Africans as equals, as partners, not as a race of people to be civilized, which was the current thinking at the time. So she was already quite a farsighted person.   Recorded: March 16, 2009   Question: What is the history and mission of the Royal African Society?   Richard Dowden: The Royal African Society; it's just over a 100 hundred years old.

Sweet Salone - Travels in Sierra Leone
 
09:41
Short travelogue of 3 weeks spent in Sierra Leone in November 2011. Dam Good Trips founder, Christina Chowaniec, had a friend that lived there at the time - this is a compilation of the visit, where the friends took local transport throughout the country. At the time, the friends were probably Sierra Leone's first 3 tourists (ie not aid workers already in the country going on holiday, but perhaps the first ones who had specifically come just for a holiday). Areas filmed include Freetown (city filming), Kabala, Bo, main towns, Rogbonko village, (red road scenes), and Tiwai Wildlife sanctuary (jungle scenes).

15 -- My travels in Africa
 
10:51
During my time in South Africa there was what you call Apartheid - You had to be careful who you associated with or evan speak to - That was the Law. The bottom line was Africans and whites were keep apart totally South African Mines are Deep, Dark, Hot and Dangerous with a possibility to be exposed to radioactive uranium and the contamination of RADON GAS. I soon had enough of working underground on the gold mines of South Africa when a fellow sampler told me of his health issues that was the result of working underground and another sampler told me that he was a mark man underground because of the way he treated some african workers so with all the crazy conditions that I had to endure as well as the "Bumps" (Rock-fall) "Cave in" call it what ever you want that is why I always had one or two Mozambique's walking infront of me and one behind me and still I didn't feel safe so I asked to be transferred to surface so that was my experience of working underground in a South African Gold Mine. The big boss himself Mr Prentice the boss of mining operations decided to get into the act of showing me how melting gold is done and since his parents came from Dublin he never stopped me from roaming around the mine as much as I wanted and no one said anything to me other then a co-worker (Afrikaner) ask me if I was a communist all because he saw me being friendly with the African mine workers. I was really surpriesed when I came across the Birchenough Bridge that I immediately thought of the Sydney Harbour Bridge in the middle of the bush of Southern Africa which is a replica of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The Australians couldn't have been more helpfull when Peter and I arrived at Darwin Airport from Dili East Timo. Our clothes were totally in shreds and my shoes were in pieces and I tried my best to look some what presentable for the immigration people and they told me welcome to Australia with a smile on their face and stamped my passport without any fanfare. I was so happy after what I went through (Survived a stoning on Timor) on those Indonesian islands along with Peter who traveled with me and immediately the Australians fixed me up with a job in "Rum Jungle" Uranium Mines south of Darwin. When I worked on the uranium mine in the Northern Territory my block (housing) had to be the most rambunctious bunch of guys led by Chris the English man who could really sing and who was a great guy. All it would take was just a few beers and a singing session would start just about every other night and on the week ends the party would end when we would run out of beer. Had to be careful with these Ayoreo girls hanging around the door of our adobe because the Ayoreo custom is that the women choose there partner. Jaime warned me about the women and said I might end up with a lance through my back from one of the young hunters that return back to camp from three or four days or more hunting in the jungle. Apartheid in South Africa 1970: A lot of people on both sides of the street in down town Johannesburg waiting for a bus to take them home to their families on Christmas Eve late afternoon. The problem was there was only one bus and probably that wasn't going anywhere while the Afrikaans was at home with his family not thinking of the poor African because in the Afrikaans mind the African doesn't even exist. Those African weren't going anywhere because all of the bus drivers are white what I have seen so you come to your own conclusions. Dredged for diamonds of the Skeleton Coast (Namir Desert) in Namibia. The policy was when you were flown by company plane from Cape Town to the diamond sight you brought what you want but when your two weeks tour of work was up you return to Cape Town for a week with only the clothes and shoes you wore which meant no camera. Yelapa was a popular getaway for celebrities at one time and because I was a gringo the local authorities believe that all gringo's have the same habit and how frustrated and disappointed they become when they fail to find anything on me. The Tonga people lived back then as you can see in a terrible state with a high percent of the children dying of many diseases as well as some of the adult population.They were the forgotten people by the Rhodesia regime(out of sight out of mind) probably the reason they were permitted to smoke dagga(dope)was to isolate them and to be forgotten. Today the Tonga people have benifited amazingly from national and international aid.

RE-EMERGING: The Jews of Nigeria
 
03:48
http://www.re-emergingfilm.com RE-EMERGING: The Jews of Nigeria A Documentary Film by Jeff L. Lieberman RE-EMERGING: The Jews of Nigeria" is a journey into the heart of Igboland and into the lives and culture of the Igbo people. The film introduces the world to the many synagogues that dot the land, and a handful of passionate, committed, and diverse characters -- each striving to fulfill their historical legacy with few resources and unbeknownst to most of the world. Individual stories are woven together with key facets of history, tracing the Igbo from Biblical times up to the brutal 1960s Biafran War, which killed over 1 million Igbo. A wide range of American academics help detail this history, including shedding new light on the Igbo origins of thousands of slaves captured during the Atlantic Slave Trade and brought to American shores. The film delves into this history and travels to the southeast coast of Georgia, where locals still speak of the Igbo spirit at a riverbed called Ibo Landing. The individuals featured in the film also demonstrate that incredible Igbo spirit. Shmuel is a young man whose story exemplifies the journey toward finding Judaism. Today, he is a leader in his community who teaches and chants Torah, and has big dreams of one day becoming a rabbi. But like almost every Igbo, he grew up surrounded by Christian colonialism, and the road to discovery has been fraught with misunderstanding, wrong turns into Messianic worship, family exile, violent prejudice from both Muslim and Christian neighbors, scorn from Jews he has contacted in the Western world, and frustration of a lack of funds to further educate himself through Internet access. Yet, it's also been an amazing discovery of community, and furthered with the love of an American rabbi who has been working with both him and the larger community to see their dreams become a reality. This is the first independent film for New York-Based Director, Jeff L. Lieberman. Lieberman is a freelance Journalist and Producer in New York, whose work has been seen on CBS, HBO, CNN, FOX, Starz Encore, Fox Movie Channel, The Discovery Channel, E! Entertainment, and on the websites of Yahoo!, The New York Post, CBS Moneywatch, and The Huffington Post. Brand new musical score of West-African and Jewish music composed by Brooklyn-based Composer, Jeremiah Lockwood of Sway Machinery.

Malarial Prevention. Pre-Travel Advice
 
03:49
http://www.advantagevaccination.com Welcome to Advantage Vaccination Services. Today, let's learn about Malaria. Malaria is an infectious disease, which is sometimes fatal. It is an international health problem causing 350-500 million infections, and cause millions of death annually Malaria mainly transmitted by mosquitoes. You can also get malaria by receiving infected blood, or organs There are certain risk factors that increase the likelihood of a person of getting malaria. One of the risk factors is the area that one is traveling to. For example, West Africa is a high risk area, because these insects have developed resistance against insecticides, thus increasing in population. Another risk is 1st and 2nd generation immigrants living in non-endemic countries who return to the country of origin. Another risk factor is that those who had malaria can still get malaria. Some symptoms of malaria include fever, chills, sweats, headache, body aches, nausea, and fatigue There are some preventative methods to help prevent the transmission of malaria. These include medication and skin protection Before treating a patient who has been infected with malaria, there are certain criterions that determine which treatment is best suited. These include with parasite the person has been infected with, areas that have drug-resistance, pregnancy, and allergies. The first type of medication that can be given is doxycylcine. This medication is good for last minute travelers, and it is inexpensive. This medication is to be taken weekly. The second type of medication that can be given is Mefloquine. This medication is good for long trips, and can be used during pregnancy. This medication can be taken weekly. The 3rd type of drug that can be given is Malarone. This medication is taken daily, and is it good for last-minute travelers, short travels, and it is well tolerated, with minimal side effects Skin protection is the preventative method for malaria. The best repellent to use is DEET products either long-acting or greater than 30% or a straight 100% DEET. If you do not want to use DEET, another choice is Picaridin at least 20% or greater. The best protection for clothing is to use either a permethrin spray or soak. Permethrin is an insecticide that is safe for humans, but deadly for insects. The other preventative item to use is bed netting. These are very useful during the night, especially if you do not want to wake up every few hours to check if you were bitten or not. These netting provide a sense of relief and give you comfort and knowledge that no bugs will bite you in the night.

Deeper Missions - Life-Saving Aid | Life-Changing Travel - Extended
 
04:40
Deeper Missions is dedicated to saving the lives of children and their communities in Africa, through clean energy and safe water/sanitation projects; we also have a mission to change lives through meaningful mission travel to implement these projects. Our mode of operating is to supply materials and provide on-the-ground services which improve the education and livelihood of the communities in which we serve. Without reliable electricity, children and their families are living with poor respiratory health because of fumes from diesel generators, kerosene lamps and candles. Without managed sanitation and safe water sources, drinking water for communities and schools is more often contaminated, causing ill health and loss of school/work time. This video tells the story of our January 2012 Deeper Missions team trip with five Virginia Tech students and recent graduates. We helped construct waterless, solar composting toilet systems at the Ebert Kakua School for the Deaf in Sierra Leone's second largest city, Bo. The soundtrack of the video opens with music by G.C.P. ("God's Chosen People"), a small group of Sierra Leonean Christians who write and perform their own music as well as doing charitable work within their community. The piano track is a moving piece by Carly Comando and which helps show the story of the Ebert-Kakua deaf school. Learn more about Deeper Missions' vision and work at http://www.DeeperMissions.org and our sponsor-a-student program, designed to empower Sierra Leone's deaf, at http://www.HopeForKakua.org We hope you enjoy this video and would like to come alongside Deeper Missions as a partner, sponsor or potential team member.

5 -- Visited many ancient ruins and museums on my travels.

"A Elephant's Graveyard" I believe it came from incidents like this amongst elephants when older elephants become a burden on the rest of the group and are no longer welcomed so they are banished to survive for themselves wandering alone in the bush until they die and what I call the "Elephant Theory" The last elephant who is old had been forced away several times as they approach the water indicating that he wasn't welcome in the group but he continued to follow the group regardless of how much of an effort the young elephant's made,.very sad scene. I dredged for diamonds along the Skeleton Coast and worked the gold mines(WRCM) near Krugerdorp South Africa and since I didn't agree with apartheid I had no choice but to move on. Heading north to Rhodesia/Zimbabwe was no different then South Africa so I decided enough is enough and what I saw I didn't like and I knew it couldn't last so I continued to head north overland all the way to Cairo. Apartheid meant some restrictions on the whites but not as severe as how the Africans were treated. Basically it was not a very comfortable political situation to live in for me. You had to be careful who you associated with or even speak to - That was the Law. Soon after my visit to Southern Africa Zimbabwe-Rhodesia,South Africa,Lesotho,Namibia-Southwest Africa, Swaziland, Botswana, Mozambique and Malawi I stopped by the the FRELIMO office in Dar es Salaam Tanzania hoping to visit the FRELIMO camp in Mozambique. They were more interested in what I thought and my views since I traveled to so many countries. Just a short time later soon after my visit mine shafts were blown up in South Africa which I think was the beginning of the end of the apartheid regime because it gave the Africans hope that they could done it alone. Came across the notorious Jonas Savimbi and his cronies in a hotel lounge in the town of Arusha near Kilimanjaro Tanzania. It didn't take much to upset him because he shouted at me across the lounge that he would pick me up and throw me through a large glass window. He was a tough looking guy and I'm sure he wouldn't hesitate in doing it. I had no quarrel with him, it was all because I was waiting for my food & drink that I ordered and 15 min/20 min had passed and I asked the waiter could I have my beer at least because I was dying of thirst after being walking in 100 degree heath and at that Savimbi went into a ragging fit standing across from me in the lounge shouting at me to drop my demanding attitude and when he calmed down he told the waiter to get me a beer. It seemed to be part of the course to be picked on and ending up in a confrontation with one guy or the other on the road but that was not always the case. I have met a lot more decent people then those who seem to have a chip on their shoulder over one thing or the other. There was one other nasty instance when I was eating at a restaurant in Sofia Bulgaria when this African guy sat himself down opposite me at the same table and started babbling about how great Moscow was and the soviet system was. His anti-west lingo and telling me also that I looked typical British,after awhile I had enough from this guy so I tossed this large table that we were sitting at and everything on it on top of him and he ended up sprawled out on the floor with everything on top of him and I was asked to leave the restaurant immediately which meant they didn't want any attention brought to them by the authorities.They rushed me out of that restaurant as fast as they could. Khotso Sethuntsa from Lusikisiki Transkei South Africa was one of the many great character I came across on my travels who had 22 wives and probably more plus as many concubines as wives and fathered 200 children and probably more. Known through out Southern Africa only as "Khotso" but to many the greatest herbalist of them all that made him into millionaire. I paid him a visit one day and I was told I needed to be wearing a jacket. The only piece of clothing I could come up with was a poncho I bought in Chile. A wife shouted out a window and asked what was that I was wearing, after some haggling between me the guy at the gate and the wife in the window I got through the the large double gate's wearing my pancho. A few month's later there was a picture of Khotso in a South African newspaper wearing a poncho but there one thing Khotso failed to realize that there is a pancho made for women and a poncho made for men.
