People of Africa – Best Photos

Aside from the furry, nursing, large and small mammals, we went to Africa to meet and see Africans at home and at work. With varying degrees of success, we did just that between Oct. and Nov. of 2009. Here are the (IMO) best photos of the people we traveled with and the people we encountered. Enjoy!

    Seeing all the animals and then the people makes one ponder the connections. Evolution is an awesome thing. In a way it surprises me you would want to go there again, but I have heard that from others who have been to Africa as well; I guess the place must have magical qualities. Bob

      Africa is a very big place as you know and northern Africa is Muslim, dry desert, and mountainous. Southern Africa has desert as in Namibia but also vast prairies like the Serengeti, volcanic craters inland river deltas and has a black, Christian or animist religious foundation. Even as I write these broad generalizations, I can see that they don’t capture the essence as no 100 words could do. Morocco is much more uniform culturally than across the south of the continent. No decent wildlife which was more of a kicker than the fact that we revisited the continent.

      I’d still happily go back to the south part. I hope the pictures of the north, Morocco can live up to the ones from the south – but they are much, much different.

    Great photos. I miss the days of Africa, it really is about the people we meet there to give us some understanding that our lives seem so different but we are all inhabitants of this beautiful planet. Politics has nothing to do with nature and people. I hope more people travel and get it.

      Me, too Irene. I’m thinking of ways to get back – it’s relatively expensive travel for us but I’m pretty sure Chiyemi is ready. Surprising in a way – I thought this was a once in a lifetime thing: see the big furry beasts and move on. Maybe, maybe not.
