We are taking ‘Photos Tell Stories’ up-country to villages around Farafenni and Soma. We’ll update on the workshops as soon as we can.
Thanks to ‘Jekkah – African inspired clothing’ for the the fab tote bags (see door of jeep)! And to Q Cell, Gambia for their contribution of the USB stick and router – which allows me to post this from the back of the jeep!
After 3 1/2 hours of waiting in a mile long line, in 90+ degree heat, that wasn’t moving anywhere fast, enough was enough – plus, we did want to get to Farafenni today! – we decided to take the ‘fast track’, as we had watched many other vehicles doing, to the front of the line. You can deduce for yourselves what that means, but lets just say that it involved paying out more Dalassi than we intended to! And, then it was wacky races, with all of those other ‘fast trackers‘, to get to the ferry, and getting our rear tail light taken out by a gilly gilly (local minibus) in the process!
More news soon on the Photos Tell Stories workshops, here up-country .
