Nomads and Housewives


Another blog about Africa just joined the ranks and this one is by my friend Kelly Jo who is living in Yola, Nigeria. I'm so excited that she finally started this blog because she is always exploding with cool ideas so I can't wait to see what she presents on her blog!

The name 'Nomads and Housewives' is not surprising at all as she has been loving this name FOREVER. I wouldn't be surprised if she told me she has it legally copyrighted!! How did she come up with it.....

"i interviewed the sudenese 'lost boy' refugees in kenya for possible resettlement to america. i had to ask them what their parents did for a living. nine times out of 10 they said their fathers were 'nomads' and their mothers were 'housewives'. for about ten years in africa that description fits my own life perfectly. unusual travel and anything related to home, food, and design from under-covered regions of the world are what you're gonna get here."

I hope you enjoy!
