Kente – Fishing the Niger
My wife’s good friend Leslie has a remarkable daughter named Kate who served in the Peace Corp in Africa. This gave her a chance to travel around the continent. When I heard she was going to Timbuktu I got all excited and did up 2 pigeons for her which she graciously took along. This is the first one she released somewhere along the Niger River. Interesting juxtaposition of a slow one man primitive canoe vs. a fast large aluminum plane carrying many people. Etats-Unis d’Amerique is French for U.S.A.
