Tam Tam Femme is in the process of translating my journal entries into several languages. Tam Tam Femme is a self funded, apolitical network of over 200 women throughout Latin America and Africa. The network provides a link between a woman traveler and a woman in the country she will be traveling to. Through these links women are able to get practical knowlegde about water safety, health conditions, living environemnt, schools, volunteer organizations, etc. For example, the family I was put in touch with in Johannesburg, South Africa runs a travel agency and they are working to find a bed and breakfast for me to live at during my stay in Jo'burg. The site contains journal entries from women traveling around the globe and provides several great travel links.
