And what about A for Amazing for this amazing shot that has no connection to a certain striped animal, though I see some stripes there. You are certainly bringing our Africa in all of its hilarity and incongruence

A-Acorns-Assuming that WPRESTO did not include that in Amazing.

B for BURLAP SACKS, or at least I think they are burlap. The abandoned gold mining camp in Alaska, stacks of sacks just left. Presumably to package partially processed ore.

I came to Africa with a filtered view of reality - many wildlife programs that inevitably, sooner or later, have a cheetah running down a Thomson's gazelle - and news stories, especially when something went very bad, although not always, but mostly involving people-in-power. So I cast somewhat naive eyes on day-to-day ordinary life, the realities of local commerce, housing, travel, etc, etc., and find those things unique, unusual, fascinating enough to photograph. I'm really glad if the images intrigue, please, and maybe enlighten others.

L for LEOPARD again. This skin, on the wall of a lodge, is probably a legacy item from the 1950's or so.
