On Photo Safari: The Serengeti and Lake Natron

When I booked my initial trip to Tanzania and lined up my 9 day safari through Tarangire, Lake Natron, the Serengeti and Ngornogoro Crater I justified splurging a bit, the length of the trip, and the cost, by telling myself it was the trip of a decade. The mental math was clear – I’d have an incredible 9 days of safari, but would return having sated my need for a follow up for the foreseeable future. As it turns out, I could not have been more wrong.  As I write this post, I’m already dreaming o...

When Uganda last played Africa Cup, Idi Amin ruled

Kampala (AFP) – In an era when dictator Idi Amin would interrupt football training to offer advice and bundles of cash, Uganda made it all the way to the 1978 Africa Cup of Nations’ final. However in the nearly 40 years that followed that surprise success, the “Cranes” — named after the national bird — never again soared to such dizzy heights.

Watch a Crane Totally Collapse After Trying to Move a Water Tank

Bad idea: trying to use a crane to lift a water tank before checking if it’s empty or not. You can see the crane’s arm begin to buckle under the weight of the tank and then watch it totally collapse as it drops the tank onto the side of the building and flips itself off the ground.Read more...

Just Two Guys Dangling Off a Crane Like It's No Big Deal
