African pygmies and orphans
• African pygmies and orphan
You wake up in the morning in the best five star hotel ... While checking mail, the Negro in a white suit serves breakfast. You eat crispy croissant, fragrant espresso drink it ... fresh juice, shower, swimming pool, massage ... It is time to go for a walk in the city and gather material for another post. Go down to the first floor .. WHAT IS IT ?! The hotel is captured!
The lobby is full of war, all sleep, the doors are locked ... what to do? Right. If you filled up one way, you have to go through another! The second output was free. Liberty!
In the CAR (Central African Republic) has recently been a military coup, now in the city run by the rebels.
They kicked the president, seized favorite building in the center, sacked the city. Now they rob villages, ruining the church and doing all sorts of dirty tricks. While UN troops have not entered, chaos reigns in the country. The biggest problem - there is no power, no police, no justice. Any Gopnik with a gun at any checkpoint can make you anything and no one will even complain. Head to the left post, which is 10 minutes to check the documents and argued with my driver.
Hello! I need your clothes and your motorcycle.
Checking documents. The funny reaction from the rebels to the question: "And you can take a picture of you?" Try to come to the riot police in Moscow and say: "I raped your wife, your daughter, your dog, and then you!" Here's reaction will be about the same. I do not know what causes it. So that the photo with the military - a freeze frame of the video that I filmed secretly.
Some people today are not lucky. There was only a stick, a helmet and a pool. By the way, the local warriors amusing fashion - instead of a belt be wrapped with brightly colored climbing ropes. It is a pity lift did not work so far.
Well, enough about sad. I have many people asked, what shoes are best suited for Africa? Of course this:
I went to the village Yombo look at the life of pygmies. Lives were worthless. Previously, there were forests, but over the past 20 years, all cut down. Now, instead of the swamp forests.
Pygmies very sad without forests. Previously, they could sell the timber, and is now nothing to sell.
getter returns without extraction.
Look, what a beautiful girl.
This is so-so
By the way, I noticed that he had not seen here at toys children. At all. Children play with stones, sticks, machetes, but not toys. Not here, and toy stores.
This is the usual diet of rural families in the King. Bananas (cooked like potatoes at us), roots kasavy (ground into flour, cook porridge and eaten with sauce), sweet corn, some fruit trees and a caterpillar. Even maggots are very tasty, but now is not the season.
But go mushrooms. Something like our honey agaric.
Pygmy. Those famous "pygmy forest" in CAR, as indeed, in the whole of Africa, already almost gone. Culture and traditions are disappearing pygmies. New Life gets in their way of life is slowly dissolving a way of life for the little people on the planet. Who is the real life of pygmies more than a tourist attraction.
Pygmy hunters consider the most unbloody. They never hunted for hunting, never kill animals for the sake of the desire to kill, they will never store them for future use meat. Even the dead animal they bring to the village and cut up, cooked and eaten on the spot, summoning all the inhabitants of the village for a meal. The fishing Pygmies often used poisons, "lulling" the fish special herbs. Fish floats on the surface of the water, after which it can be collected by hand. Pygmies usually take just the right amount of fish, and all the "extra" in some time wakes up and floats away.
It Pygmies show their dancing.
After submission they receive cigarettes and biscuits.
The king lived poorly. Almost no cars on the roads, and if so, then the car is loaded to the maximum people and goods.
The usual thing. It's still going somehow. It's amazing.
Sometimes the machines break down.
passenger car is also loaded.
Military ride on a pickup truck.
City Center. Beauty.
Local feature - a wagon with wood. Such carts on the roads. Small truck loaded with logs and roll on timber processing plants. Then sell the tree. Timber carriers in the country, I have not seen, all by hand.
And this is the best restaurant in town, serving snails beer. Snails are $ 15, and for some reason without the shell. It's my lunch. After dinner, I decided to come to the Russian Embassy, which, as it turned out, it works. On the phone, the consul said, that they have lunch and if I really want to talk to him, then I can come in the evening. Gate so no one opened. I never set foot on Russian soil I to the king.
I went to the local shelter to the orphan. Here they live.
This is a school.
I was immediately stuck to the children, grabbed hands and began to hug and say I'm their dad, asked to pick them up. I am a good man, he went immediately to them for gifts. Toys, unfortunately, nowhere to sell, had to buy sweets, biscuits and chocolate.
When I arrived, the girls dressed already in their best dresses. See what sweetie. Again immediately grabbed my hand and said that she will not let go. I was about to burst into tears and began to think how to bring her home. But she saw the chocolate, took him, waved and went there. Dad it was no longer needed.
He came to the hotel and burst into tears. I love children.
