Travel across Africa from Addis Ababa to Lilongwe – a taste of Climate Change

The plane travel across Africa was the occasion to take some pictures and get an overview about the African landscape. From my first impression, I would say : “it was amazing.” It was also very hard to take pictures first because of the camera I used (my mobile phone, which isn’t the most recent smartphone). Second because of the staff members… Even if I showed them that my device was in “aiplane mode”, they tried to forbid me to use it (even to listen to the music… so boring… :p )

Here is my images taken short after Addis Ababa

As you can see, the lands are very green. Progressively, the fertile land is replaced by another one, even more arid…

Sometimes, I was wondering if I still was on Planet Earth. When I saw the landscape, I had the impression that I was looking a documentary about Planet Mars. Here are some photos…

Before this travel, I watched some documentaries about climate change which showed how to figure out this phenomenon at a macroscopic scale. Seing it with my own eyes was so amazing… and so disappointing…

People here have surely a lot of problem to access to water… 😦
