Photographer's Note

This photo clearly fits my category of "nothing special". It just shows a few people at a market-place. In spite of that it is a bit special to me, because it adds a new country to my TE map. I didn't have many enough and thought I needed one more. ;-)

This is one of the only two photos I can find from a short visit to Gambia in the winter of 1990. The other one can be seen as a workshop. I spent a few days in Banjul, the capital, at the start and the end of a journey mainly through Guinea-Bissau and Senegal. Unfortunately Banjul was not one of my favorite places in Africa, generally ugly and dirty.

This is from the Albert Market, named after Prince Albert, husband of Queen Victoria, during British colonial days. It seems to be popular among tourists nowadays, but in 1990 I didn't see many foreigners there. The tourists mainly stayed at the beaches outside the city.

I have scanned this from a Kodachrome slide. Here is a larger version.

You can see the location at the Map: view, but don't expect to find the little yellow man here.
