Medina-Bransan is a Fula village in eastern Senegal.
They heard cattle and farm to survive.

Its amazing to see how much of a difference on a whole village of people the purchase of one $8k water well/pump can have.
Just amazing.
Medina-Bransan is up in the galleries.

One of the two UNESCO World Heritage sites in eastern Senegal is the Bassari Region.
Within the region there are three distinct tribes of people each with different cultures.

I managed to explore two of the three before the rain ended my expedition.
The Bassari Region is up in the galleries.

Niokolo-Koba National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage site in eastern Senegal.
Before visiting, I was under the impression that all the wildlife was hunted/poached to extinction.
Boy, was I wrong.

I didn't have any difficulty finding lots of wildlife.
Photographing it was another story.

As the rainy season was upon us by the time I visited, the greenery was growing, making it easy for the animals to disappear into the brush.
I did manage to get a few shots though.

Niokola-Koba is up in the galleries.

Sleeping Giant Provincial Park

Camping was great.
Even the dog enjoyed it.

I ate lots of marshmallows and hot dogs.
Got to love camp fires.
Pictures are up.

PS - yes, I still have to upload the pictures from Budapest and from my trip to Senegal.

Spending 2011 working overseas made me come to appreciate Ontario.
I've been back in the GTA for over a year and a half now, and still haven't exhausted my options for photo-exploration activities.
Obviously, the summer and fall seasons have a lot more to explore than the winter, so I've been taking advantage of every last free moment I have to go out and photograph something.
This weekend we'll be off camping.
So, of course, pics will follow.
