May theme day: City exchange

This month's theme is " Post a photo of another city (than yours)", so here it is - though it's not exactly a city, not even a village:
Fereriwo, a temporary settlement of Fulani semi nomadic herders, in the Sahel of Burkina Faso (West Africa).
I had the chance to do ethnobotanical field research there, spending every year 4 to 6 weeks at this place, during five years. It was a fantastic experience.

The women of Fereriwo. Fulani woman are said to be the most beautiful in this region.

Julia what a change from Japan!
You couldn't dream of anything more different! And how lucky you were to go there for work, I'm sure the relation to the people must be very different from being a tourist.
Great photos for this theme day!
