Children of Saadani

By rontear  
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.

A dream of an image Ron, one I'd loce to own.Missed so many oppunities in India it just didn't work for me, could only manage candid images. In Bhutan they just love you to photo them..

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.
