Photographer's Note

I say farewell to Albania, at least for the time being. I have nothing else new to show so I have looked through my archives for some more oldies. In a short while I will go on another journey and bring back new pictures.

These are children I met in the legendary desert city Timbuktu (Tombouctou) in February 1982. That was less than 30 years ago, so it's not really very old.

I have no memory of this meeting. Looking at the children now I suppose they were Tuaregs, the dominant ethnic group in the northern part of the Sahel area.

I have scanned this from a Kodachrome slide.
