Whilst in Saadani, a new Tanzanian reserve on the coast. We were asked if we would like to visit the village. This of course we accepted, it was fascinating to learn how they all lived. From how they fished the sea, To where they laundered they clothes. These two followed us throughout and I only managed the one image of their exuberance. Generally I did not take any images as this was not allowed in certain area's.

They look like great kids full of energy and life, no hang ups here by the looks, just playful mischief.

All the very best

Shame you couldn't get any more images of this place - but that's the way it goes sometimes. Nice candid moment captured in this one.
