I samband med kejsarsnittet skadades hon, och det hål mellan livmodern och urinblåsan som uppkom då, reparerades här av Dr. Mitei och […]

Lahat Dapat: No Child Left Behind

However, it’s quite a different atmosphere in schools here. The issues are huge and words cannot truly express what I’ve seen. […]

Let the ritual commence August 30

Fire Walking at the Sangam Temple, Suva Fiji

I arrived at the Sangam temple heart beating to the sound of rythmic drums and an excitement in the air. After a  ten day ritual of worship to the godess Maha Devi these South Indian devotees believe if they are cleansed physically and spiritually they will feel no pain. Annually they bathe in the sea, before dancing yellow […]
