I read an article today about Kibera in Kenya’s first copy of Big Issue magazine that I bought at the World Social Forum.

It opened: “For tourists arriving in Kenya for holidays, their itineries are never complete without a visit to Kibera, Sub Saharan Africa’s largest slum settlement…”

Regardless of the other important content in the article, this struck a chord with me.

Am I just another tourist? Is there nothing I can do?

I have arrived back home, but there must be something I can do from here. There must.
