Hi you guyz, I hope you had a wonderful day:) I’ve been meaning to share with you guyz my thoughts about this beautiful Nigerian movie starting Nse Ikpe Etim and Joseph Benjamin and directed by Ikechukwu Oyeka .

Hey you guys so I’ve been looking online for videos describing the journey of young people who went to Mecca for pilgrimage.I don’t know if that I’m not lucky but I couldn’t find videos that really touched me until I found this video of this loving African American couple travelling from Kansas City to Mecca & Medina. I spent an entire hour following th their journey, I felt their tears, their joy at being in the Holly city . I’m striving to get to that spiritual level where I can really appreciate such a trip & I hope to one day accomplish this duty with my husband InchAllah! Here’s the video enjoy: A big thank you to that couple as well , thanks for inspiring me and probably so many others:) Yaye

I wanted to start this post with this video because I think that it’s really explanatory of  the actions of Burkinabe Architect Francis Kere in his home village of  Gando. Mr Kere was the recipient of a  German bursary which allowed him to study architecture in Germany.While there, his village was heavy on his mind.Even though he was still in school he was impatient to make a change in his country so with the help of friends and his association “Schulbausteine für Gando” he set to use the western architecture methods he learned in Germany and adapt them to the reality of Africa.
