We passed the night in a lodge, surrounded by the desert, not so far from the highway.Accomodations were nice, but not fabulous. In the place we found a "Walking with the San people" tour. They tried to recreate the way of live of natives, showing this for us. Each personage told a little history in its native idiom (full of clicks)and this was translated for us, showing the problems they faced, the medicines they had, how to be protected of the lions, how to find water, how to keep it, how to make fire, etc...
Sam people is considered like the oldest people in the world. These people in the image were recreating the way of life of the natives in the desert and probably the older lived this way some years ago.
Passamos a noite num alojamento no meio do deserto, mas não muito longe da rodovia. O local tinha boas acomodações, mas era simples. Havia uma espécie de tour chamado "caminhando com os bosquímanos" que era uma espécie de recriação do estilo de vida ancestral deste povo, mostrando como arrumavam seus remedios, arranjavam e conservavam água, faziam fogo, etc.. Seu idioma é cheio de cliques e assim eles nos contavam pequenas histórias do seu modo de vida.
Este povo é considerado o mais velho do mundo e analisando os personages do nosso tour creio que os mais velhos chegaram a viver daquela maneira.

Hi Jorge. A poignant image as these people and their way of life are exiting our world and will become (as they already have in many of their former lands) fringe dwellers, living in slums and abandoned, turning to alcoholism and prostitution. In South Africa the scientists are tapping into their knowledge of the medicinal properties of plants and are teaching a group of Sam to use the GPS and record where in the wild these plants are still to be found.With the loss of each minority humanity becomes poorer and more ignorant. Great clarity- a distinctive photo. Regards. Klaudio.

well conveyed the true way of life in Africa, maybe back in time.
Technical details well collected.
