Photographer's Note

This is from the city of Ziguinchor in southern Senegal and I'm about to leave for Guinea-Bissau. I have been offered a seat at the front with the driver. It means I will have to pay a bit more, but after all – I'm white so I'm supposed to be rich. (Which of course I am, comparatively).
The two children probably just happened to be here and wanted to be in the picture. The man I believe was a fellow passenger from Sierra Leone, who turned out to be very nice and helpful and assisted me a lot during the long and complicated journey to Bissau, which involved several changes of vehicle, including an open truck, a small motor boat and a truck converted into some kind of bus.
This picture from 1990 was scanned from a Kodachrome slide.
