As International AID agencies and government departments scramble to draw African nations into the developed world, life continues on the streets for local people getting on with their lives….
Young boys herd cattle many miles for their daily water as women carry the same back to their village in containers held high on their heads. In the
absence of daycare children sit patiently as their parent conducts housekeeping, sleeps amidst the chaos of markets or loyally follows wherever
they go. Traditional skills remain for sculptors or tailors in a shop, a butcher working with no refrigeration or cooking fish over hot coals within the markets that
remain essential in this continent. For those African nations near the ocean it continues to play an essential role for recreation and business activities from fishing, hairdressing, tourism or merely resting. If too far from the ocean a bike remains essential transport across the wide dry
landscapes. Amongst it all, remains the constant presence of cheerful children not yet aware they should wish for more.
