Village Trip page three

Location: Gambia

These are still pictures of our first full day in the village. It was a busy one.

One of the women at Mino's family's compound posing for a photo while she was pounding rice. The women have to do this job every day to get the rice for that day...it is not an easy task.

Some of the children that were hanging around with us watching the football game. Mino and his brother Kara are in the back.

This was my favorite photo of the weekend. We were walking past the well and this boy stopped to take a drink as well as the donkey that was leading us around all day.

Outside of a typical compound. There is usually a raised platform or a veranda with mats on it that family members gather and sit together.

This is the only building in the graveyard and is the family tomb or death house of a great Marabou that lived in the village once.

This is the village graveyard. The only markers that they have are these pieces of wood that stick out of the ground but yet everyone knows who is buried where.

I love the trees here. Now that it is the dry season (or winter) all of the Baobob trees have no leaves.

This is the fresh grave of someone who just died last week.
