Picture Time!

When we go to the village it is culturally appropriate to show respect to the chief by going to visit him in his courtyard.  Each week we go and spend sometime with him.  He is very welcoming and enjoys helping us with our language.  A couple weeks ago I took this photo of the chief and one of his daughters and Mr. Sojourner and Little Sojourner.  The contrast that struck me in this photo was their demeanor in being photographed.  Mr. Sojourner and Little Sojourner have their biggest smiles on ready for the picture.  The chief and his daughter have serious faces on in anticipation of their photo being taken.  This is just a cultural difference.  African just tend to take photographs like that (unless they have been around and been influenced by lots of Westerners).
