Somalia, broadcast behind the scenes…..

Weekend – always a time to just breathe from the manic week.
Escape is the word.
I love escape and all it entails – and I strive for it often.
Buses, planes, trains, long trips on dead-straight random roads.

But the past few weeks my “escape” has been thrown into a bit of perspective. Robyn Kriel, eNews anchor and reporter has just come back from Somalia. For her and Meshack Dube it was 10 days of no escape, no weekend, no food, no breathing.

Catching a lift with “Gift of the Givers” to tell the story of famine for eNews Channel.

She tells of their ten days in Somalia, and giving us a good pause to think when we next say: “I simply need to escape”

Read her great and very intimate article’s on Daily Maverick.
