Just a few of the more than 500 species of birds to be found in the thrilling Tarangire National Park in Tanzania. This map was a huge challenge because the brightly colored birds sort of pre-empted my color palette. It was fun to try to balance between effective composition and there's-too-much-crap-on-that-map. Hope I balanced okay!
As a Canadian expat living in Cairo, Egypt, I wanted to give viewers a taste of what I think makes this wonderfully chaotic metropolis so unique. I have included both the notable historic landmarks and the obscure, culturally distinctive elements which give Cairo so much character.
Primates and the national parks you can find them in the South of Uganda. Including mountain gorillas, chimpanzees, grey cheeked mangabey, Ugandan red colobus, L'hoest's monkey, eastern black and white colobus, blue monkey, golden monkey, red tailed monkey, olive baboon, vervet monkey, potto, and bush babies. Parks: Kibale Forest National Park, Queen Elizabeth National Park, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Mgahinga National Park. I used elements from a fabric collection I collected for Blend Fabrics.
One year ago today, I was in the middle of savanna, Masai Mara National Reserve, in Kenya. It was amazing to see all these wildlife from giant elephants to lion's prides to a strayed wild beast. There was so much to see, not only big animals, but also small insects and quirky plants! Can you find a tiny glowworm in the map? :)))))
Some curious signs from around the Rainbow Nation. South Africans tell it like it is and are never without a sense of humour. Many of these signs I saw with my own eyes, and at first they were shocking. I lived near Cape Town when my oldest child was a baby, and my husband is originally from Johannesburg. Many fond memories.
