by Lucas Vegan June. 20, 2017 705 views

WITH ONE HOST FAMILY MEMBER WHO WELCOMED A STRANGER COMING BY BICYCLE TO THE LAND WHERE IS TOO HARD TO GET TO WE WENT FOR A LONG WALK TO OTHER MORE ISOLATED VILLAGE. I WAS THE ONLY LIGHT SKIN PERSON IN THEIR MEMORY. THE ELDERS REMEMBER ONE FISHERMAN FROM GREECE WHO CAME FOR A SHORT TIME AND MADE ONE WOMAN PREGNANT. I MET THE FRUIT, AROUND 50 YEARS OLD WOMEN, OF THEIR RELATIONSHIP LATER ON (NOT IN THE PHOTO)

THE ONLY WAY BY LAND TO GET TO THIS VILLAGE ON THE LAKE TANGANYIKA. A FEW GOODS LIKE CLOTHES OR METAL ROOFS ARE DELIVERED BY BOATS FROM NEIGHBOUR COUNTRIES THAT THE LAKE TANGANYIKA DIVIDES AS IT IS MUCH EASIER THIS WAY.

THE ELDEST FROM MY HOST FAMILY WHO WELCOMED ME THEIR HOME AND WHERE I STAYED FOR AROUND 10 DAYS. TRADITIONAL DISHES ON THE TABLE ARE COMPLETELY VEGAN (PLANT BASED)

SOME INSECTS ARE ENORMOUS AND LOOK DANGEROUS

AND SOME ANIMALS LOOK SWEET TOGETHER ALTHOUGH THEY ONES WOULD CHASE OTHERS IN OUR MIND ;)

TOO HOT TO SLEEP INSIDE THE HOUSE

FOOD PREPARED TRADITIONAL WAY...
