Exactly 4 years ago, I left my native California and embarked on a 9 month journey around the world, in pursuit of adventure and the human story. I hopped on a plane bound for South Africa and Mozambique, and then took a 15,653 mile road trip across North America. I sold my car upon arriving in NYC, and haven’t looked back ever since. #neverstopexploring #roadtrip #canigraduate #wanderlust (at New York City)

I took this photograph in Mozambique on a drive to South Africa. Their eyes tell a deep rooted story, and I was curious about the Chinese characters on the side of their truck. “The Chinese are building things in exchange for mining rights, timber rights, fishing rights, and these are absolutely bad deals.” - Jim LaFleur, senior economist for Mozambique’s largest business association. “China is very clear about what it wants from Africa. Africa has absolutely no idea what it wants from China.” - Lucy Corkin, Centre for Chinese Studies, Stellenbosch University
