A: Do you know?

I spent April 2009 in Tanzania ashore Lake Tanganyika with a group of doctors and filmmakers who are aiming to build a floating health clinic in East Africa.
Two nights in a row we witnessed two of the most jaw-dropping lightning storms any of us had ever seen.
This was my favorite shot. Not only can you see the DRC on the other side of the lake, but those twinkling lights on the horizon are from the lanterns on fishing boats.
