Hey! I don't if I was missed but for the last two weeks I have been cruising London, Spain, France, Andorra (if that counts) and primarily Sierra Leone. Hopefully I didn't miss too many new happenings on TPF - it truly is amazing that it is possible to survive 16 days without more than 30 minutes of internet time. Anyways, thought I would share a few 'snaps' that I have quikcly removed from my batch of photos from Sierra Leone. Feel free to critique Please tell me if the images are too large and I will downsize them. 1. 2. When I was going to visit a school built by the organization I was travelling with, the students of the village were absolutely set on having their 'snaps' taken. Even when my camera was hanging down around my neck, I had students on their knees looking up at it - it was quite an experience! 3. This fellow stood out by not following the crowd I have a picture taken probably less then 10 seconds after this where he is being practically smoothered by students. 4. Near the beginning, the students were listening to one of their teachers giving a lesson and the parents were standing behind them in the heat. As I was standing listening, I felt someone tugging at my shirt, to turn around and here was this lady posing nodding her head to have me take a picture. I should probably mention on this one, I have no idea what the glur around her right check is - I haven't done anything to the background. 5. After the lesson, some of the local women were dancing as everyone else looked on. Eventually the crowd just kept moving inwards until this poor fellow was looking quite uncomfortable as he was being pressed against the drummer (far right of the photo). In front of him is one of the purse of one of the dancers. Thanks for looking!
