Patriotic Burundi in Hipstamatic

I aten’t dead!  (To quote the great Granny Weatherwax.)  It’s been a wonderful and a whirlwind summer, and I’ve got quite a lot of new material to write about after my travels and especially the Rift Valley Institute course on the Great Lakes.  I’ll ease back into it with some photos from RVI in Bujumbura.  Having left my camera in Ghana, this became the “Burundi in Hipstamatic” series by default.
