The Kingdom of Lesotho is often described as one of the poorest countries in the world. In addition to continued political instability, the nation is facing many serious social problems. Poverty and unemployment rates are high, violent crimes are common, and there are many reports of rape and abuse against women. With 25 percent of the people identified as HIV-positive, Aids/HIV rates are among of the highest in the world.

It has me back to feeling really good about travel. It has my spirits back up, and has me excited to explore. Leso...
