An oldie but goldie, taken during our ‘Short Walk in the Gambian Bush – 930km African odyssey‘ in December 2009. We met this gentleman on the road – he seemed oblivious to the fact that he was wearing a santa hat in 95 degree heat! In fact, he made us feel instantly homesick for Christmas-time with our folks back home.
We are about to shut up shop for a few days – for Christmas – and from pre-production mode for our first photography workshop in The Gambia: Photos Tell Stories . We are off to stay with friends up at Sandele Eco Retreat (we are so fortunate to have great friends who live in sublimely peaceful places), in Kartong. However, we will be back ‘in town’ on Friday 27th, December, as we have been invited to present our ‘River Gambia Expedition‘ and ‘A Short Walk in the Gambian bush‘ work with host Alieu Sabally for his ‘Bantaba’ show on Paradise Radio – with ‘live radio coverage’ at Safari Garden Hotel, Fajara.
‘Presentation and live interview of the couple who went for a expedition to the source of the River Gambia by boat. And traveled around The Gambia by foot‘ (that’s us!) – blurb on that there flier Florio and Alieu are holding.
For anyone who might be in Fajara on Friday night, from 6pm-(?), come on down and give us a little support – I think you can even ask questions afterwards! There is buffet too (425D) for those who want to eat – cold Julbrew (local beer) for those who just want to drink.
Please feel free to subscribe to the blog, if you’d like updates on the photography workshops (click ‘follow’ in the left hand column) – or you can ‘like’ our Photos Tell Stories FB page or follow us on Twitter.
More soon on the workshops.
Happy Holidays to one and all!
