Hello!

After a nice seven days off, including a trip to the bush and the Live
Earth concert in Joburg, I am heading full-steam ahead on the last
month of this incredible adventure. I arrived in Mumbai just in time
for a monsoon and am now in New Delhi visiting some incredible teams
doing work in every field imaginable. I spent the day with the
leaders of an amazing organization called Youth Parliament that is
working to give voice to young people while promoting a safe space to
exchange dialogue. It was very inspiring!

In other news, the South Africa video is done, thanks to some help
from Erin Gordon, a YV intern in South Africa. It is quite good, as I
was finally able to incorporate multiple interviews. You can find
that on the homepage here:

I have also posted tons of pictures from South Africa, including
visits to YV teams, sunrise over the Cape of Good Hope, skydiving,
safari sitings in Kruger Park and a few shots from Live Earth. Look
out for video from Kruger and Live Earth soon! The pictures are all
posted to flickr. Just click on the album you want at the right. The

Finally, a big congrats to my sister Chelsey who graduated Saturday!
I am a very proud brother.

Look out for an "email postcard" later this week. I'm hoping you
won't mind forwarding that on to friends and family as we try to boost
web traffic in the final weeks of the trip.

More soon from the other side of the planet.

Peace,

Kyle
