Pictures of Njawara

My hut, I slept on the Right
The Chickens! I loved the chickens! They circled around the camp all the time and the little ones would suddenly realize they were behind and then scamper to catch up. I took far far far too many pictures of the chickens.
The beautiful trees and the entrance gate to the Njawara cultural camp. This makes the camp look a bit bigger than it really was. I took this from the food area.
Some of the kids from the village.
Mamadou, his Kora, and his little amplifier.

I forgot to write about the mangos- there were mango trees all over the place and we would eat them all the time. Everyone would eat them all the time, you bite the skin, peel it with your teeth and then gnaw on the fruit until you get to the pit/seed. We went through our entire supply of floss in four days. The mangos would fall onto the aluminum roof with a collosal bang and startle us.

So . . .

You peel the mango with your teeth, and you wonder why you got a lil' bit sick?

Hmm. . .

I blame bad parenting.

Ooo,you think you're SO clever...but we didn't get sick until 2/3 through our time in Berefet and there weren't mangos just falling on the ground there. Plus, we (I at least)always washed the mangos with bottled water.

So there.

Hmmph.
