In the month of March, I've seen the New York Times (USA) and the Guardian (UK) publish three different articles addressing responsible tourism (though not always explicitly labelled as such). Does this mean the topic is going mainstream? Or captured the zeitgeist? Or simply a coincidence?
But it's interesting, and each article is worth a read. Working chronologically from back to front:
Some five years into the life of Afrika T, I now find myself unable to keep up with contributions at a level that I and you have come to expect from this blog. Partly this is because of other activities in responsible tourism (see example here, and another here), partly from other projects in sustainability (see examples here and here), and partly for reasons that are more personal.
I am certainly still active online and in responsible travel, so feel free to comment on existing posts here, to follow me on Twitter, and to note what I've been reading online via Delicious. I also hope to return to Afrika T, so am not bringing the blog to a halt, just declaring a hiatus of indefinite duration...
Thank you for your support over the years, and, if you're a newcomer to the site, may it still prove valuable.
