I have some insanely talented friends.

Last year as I did the Christian Aid gap year, I got to meet and get to know Kevin. Kevin has this rock star persona; he’s larger than life in a really understated way, and he’s funny and intelligent at the same time. One of those people we love to hate, because they’re good at everything.

Kevin wrote an article after we came back from the DR Congo last year, on water and sanitation in Kinshasa. That article, Trench Warfare, landed him among the finalists in the Guardian’s International Development journalism competition.

As a result, Kevin’s currently in India researching a new article for the Guardian, and he’s blogging his journey over at On The Silk Road. I highly recommend you check it out!
