The Kingdom Of Swaziland

Is a beautiful one, we did a lot of work over the 10 days and met some really great people. It was good to see that the money raised was being spent in the right way. In a country where the life expectancy is 42, 55% of the population are HIV + and 70% live under the poverty line, it was inspiring to see so much hope in peoples lives who all had a fresh outlook on life; despite the impact MTV and KFC many were able to steer clear of consumerism. Although we usually focus on the good things in life, I think that the issue of Swaziland is a pressing one and needs looking at as some economists fear it may lose everything in the next 50 years.

yer dude, I took like 900 all together but had to narrow it down. I took my colleges D40 with a 18-55 and a 55-200 (both stock lenses). It was pretty rubbish stuff but I didnt want to take my own just in case.
