Villages along the route, aka don’t take my photo

Posted on by


We went from Moloundo to Mayumba today, oddly enough the end of our trip ended at a safari plane that had been left near an airstrip for 9 to 20 years.  It was a nice trip, Ghislain is a good driver and he went slow.  The only gripe is that Gabonese people don’t like their photo taken, so besides a few willing kids all the shots were of houses.  I completely understand people not wanting their photo taken, but I was bummed because this was the part of the work I was originally excited about, the human impact.


With a week and palm wine I could change some hearts and minds, but with just a day or two its hard getting past being seen as a tourist.


Still a good day.
