A wonderful slice of African life Erika!
Thank you, Denis. So glad you like it.
Well spotted…great narrative on life!
Thanks, Clare. I should actually go back and speak to the person who lives there.
Very cool! Who needs a fancy office when you have a mobile phone? LOL!
Just love this photo. The best sign I saw was in Kariba just before the great turn of 2000. On a little green tin shack the sign read. ‘Get your Y2K problems sorted here!’ I did not have a camera with me.
Thank you, Fran.LOL for your Kariba sign. It’s terrible how one sees the best things when there’s no camera around. :)
Very interesting. Great cultural shot.
Thank you so much for visiting and commenting. Much appreciated!
