More Sights From Northern Nigeria

A Fulani Normad, thin as rail, graceful in his untiring quest to find fresh grass for his cows.

Camels still a favourite mode of transport in the far north of Nigeria, they are very few of them, but very useful in the undeveloped rural parts of the country.

Temporary hut of fulani normads.

Gwari Woman selling "firewood", chopped up pieces of wood used for fuel in rural Nigeria. Yes! it contibutes to deforestation. But tell that to this Gwari woman who needs the money to eat.
