Some special gifts.
My father-in-law was in Burkina Faso (Africa) for two weeks to visit the school he build there some years ago and to bring the children school supplies, so they can go to school!
Burkina Faso is one of the most poorest countries in the world and the people do live mostly in the desserts....They call them Bedoeïns. They ride their camels and they make pretty things. Once a week they sell these merchandise on the market.
This bracelet is made of leather and they painted it with natural paint. The necklace is made out of bone (goat?) and beads.
It are very special and gorgeous gifts to me, because I am so interested in the way these Bedoeïn people live.....So...thank you, DICK. I am very happy with the presents.
One of the twelve children dies and the people over there mostly die at the age of 46 till 48 years.....
Hard to imagine.....
Hope to be able to do something for these countries one day....
