Photographer's Note

"Toubabou" is the Bambara word for "white people". These little kids were very curious as to why a Toubabou was walking around in their town, and were determined to investigate!

Taking pictures mid-day in Africa isn't great..the light is too harsh, but sometimes, you've gotta do what you've gotta do! For some reason this shot looks a little less sharp now that its uploaded though. Any ideas as to why?
