The Feature picture above is a wonderful shot of two young Fulani girls which I took awhen I stopped my motorbike along the road running from Ndop in the Bamenda highlands to Foumban in East Cameroon in 1967. This is near the junction of this road with the track leading to the village of Koupa-Matapit to the north for those of you who know the terrain.
Below are a couple of other very interesting pictures of kids in Africa.
The one on the left is from 1973-4 during the drought when the Shashi River dried up and all the village kids from Maun went out to the remaining pools and had a whale of a good time catching the fish with their small spears.
The picture on the right is from West Cameroon in 1966-7 in a small Bakwiri village near Buea, where the kids were having a grand music fest and practicing their rhythms and also dancing. I actually believe that what we now call “Break Dancing” had it’s origins in West Africa. At our school in Sasse, one of the third stream boys, Kevin Njemo, could dance and twirl just as well as some of the guys you see doing it now on the streets of Harlem and in competitions.
Being a kid in any country can have its fun moments. Hope you enjoy!
