“From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered;
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he today that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition:

And gentlemen in England now a-bed

Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,

And hold their manhood’s cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day"

-William Shakespeare - Henry V

Field Work

Natures Umbrellas and Children


Field Work

Chancellor College Students Interviewers Crossing the River on Piggyback- 35 cents each way

It is the rainy season in Malawi and some roads may be impossible- you don't know till you try

Driving home at night from a full work day

Some things may have nothing but they are still beautiful

Wyson- my groups driver and all around good guy

12 Days Living and Working in the Field- Balaka and Mulanje

We walked for hours in maize fields to find the villages and homes of respondents

Mulanje tea estates- hand picked to awake millions

Tobacco is a cash crop and is grown by many farmers in the north

Drying tobacco leaves- strung and hung by hand

Eating after a long day in the field
