The night before was one that could have ended the story - a reaction to a black wasp that had my body going into a allergic reaction during the final 4X4 mud fight to our destination. In the morning I woke up next to @taylorfreesolo, alive but dehydrated and with an epi-pen/Benadryl hangover, confirming it was not all a dream. We didn't rest long since the warlord had a selection of the community lined up to sing and welcome us for this rare visit from the outside world, each of them carrying an AK47. ~

Sometimes there are moments of suffering #onassignment that make you question if it's worth it and the answer presents itself quite obviously. Always. After the songs finished we toured the schools and agricultural sites of this self-sufficient community redefining stereotypes of the ruthless rebels that many outsiders wrongly assume they are. @j.j.kelley
