For 2011’s World AIDS Day, Peace Corps Burkina Faso’s Community Health and AIDS Taskforce (CHAT) designed a project that was funded by SPA grants integrating HIV/AIDS awareness murals and educational symposiums all across the country. Over 70 Peace Corps Volunteers participated reaching more than 50 communities and hundreds of target populations. I held several HIV/AIDS ‘ceremonies’ where different target populations of villagers pledged to spread awareness, practice safe sex and get tested by leaving their handprint on the wall after taking the pledge. This photo was taken at the clinic in my village (where the mural was painted) after the session that the local midwife and I ran with my 6th grade girls group.

Oregon, you are beautiful. Mountains, douglass firs, blue sky, and fire reminants. #pnw #oregon #bend #finditliveit @madewithmap #roadtrips (at Bend, Oregon)

Hiked to 8900 feet, walked 10 miles through fields, woods, over rivers, and in snow; climbed rocks, soaked in the sun, bundled up for 60 mph winds and white-outs all with the goal to summit the South Sister at about 10, 400 feet elevation.  Extreme weather deterred us, but the adventure was worth it.  #southsistersummit #pnw #oregon #hiking #finditliveit @madewithmap  (at South Sister, Oregon)

Everyone needs their own “Hannah night.” Sometimes its fun to daydream and plan adventures. Who knew you could #finditliveit Egypt, Laos, and Tokyo all in one night. #travel #anthonybourdain #noreservations #foodways
