Niger – Through My Lens
Well. Here it is – my last post before I jet off to South America on Sunday morning. I’m back with another photographic journey (as far as my camera skills will let me) to the land-locked West African country of Niger. A mostly desert country, Niger is probably the most remote country I’ve ever visited. Back when I visited I didn’t sadly have the confidence to ask a lot of people if I could take their photo, so most photos do not include people. I only visited Niamey and Agadez, but nevertheless I think the pics I took do offer a little glimpse into a place few visit. Enjoy!
I made a visit to the National Museum and Zoo, sort of rolled into one in Niamey, the capital. It’s fair to say conditions for the animals were less than desirable.
I did meet a wonderful guy, his name was Halassi and he had a small apartment where I stayed a couple of night. I helped him to organise an application for a job in English – met him when I was looking for an internet cafe in Niamey. Very kind guy. He was a teacher mainly. Made my time in Niamey worthwhile.
And then I went to Agadez, in the middle of the desert. Animal/Camel market, a small festival, and the Grand Mosque the highlights.
So there you go – a little look into a country you might not know much about. Thanks for visiting today, next post will be from… well we’ll see, aye? May the Journey Never End!
