Five Mile Food (Sierra Leone)

Seeing these videos make me miss Sierra Leone so much. The little child crying is because he was afraid of my white face but he calms down with a nudge from his mom and a drink.

I remember having so much fun with Paul as he tried to demonstrate the heavy load this lady carries in order to sell her sweet potatoes for some food for the family.
