African pygmies and orphans

You wake up in the morning in the best five-star hotel of the city ... While checking mail, a black man in a snow-white suit serves breakfast. You eat a crispy croissant, wash it down with a fragrant espresso ... fresh juice, shower, pool, massage ... It's time to go out into the city for a walk and collect material for another post. Go down to the first floor .. WHAT IS IT ?! Hotel captured!

1

The lobby is full of military, everyone is sleeping, the doors are locked ... what to do? Right. If one exit is blocked, you have to go through the other! The second exit was free. Freedom!

2

In the Central African Republic (Central African Republic) there has recently been a military coup, now rebels are in charge of the city.

3

They kicked out the president, seized the buildings they liked in the center, plundered the city. Now they are robbing villages, ruining churches and doing all kinds of dirty tricks. Until the UN troops have entered, there is complete chaos in the country. The biggest problem is no power, no police, no court. Any Gopnik with a gun at any checkpoint can do anything with you and there will be no one to even complain.On the left, the head of the post, who checked the documents for 10 minutes and cursed with my driver.

Hello! I need your clothes and your bike.

5

Verification of documents. An amusing reaction from the rebels to the question: “Can I take a picture of you?” Try approaching the riot police in Moscow and say: “I will rape your wife, your daughter, your dog, and then you!” I do not know what caused it. So the photos with the military are still images from the video I secretly shot.

Someone out of luck today. There was only a stick, a helmet and a puddle. By the way, the local warriors have a funny fashion - instead of a belt, they are wrapped with bright colored climbing ropes. Sorry to remove failed yet.

Okay, enough about sad things. Many have asked me which shoes are best for Africa? Of course this:

I went to Yombo village to look at the life of the pygmies. Their life is bad. Previously, there were forests here, but in the last 20 years they were all cut down. Now instead of swamp forests.

9

Pygmies are very sad without forests. Previously, they could sell wood, but now there is nothing to sell.

Pygmy house.

The miner returns without loot.

See, what a beautiful girl.

17

This is so so

18

By the way, I noticed that I have not yet seen toys here for children. At all. Children play with stones, sticks, machetes, but not toys. There are no toy shops here either.

19

The house is richer.

20

Bedroom.

21

Living room.

This is the diet of an ordinary village family in the CAR. Bananas (cooked like potatoes), kasawa roots (ground into flour, boiled porridge and eaten with sauces), corn, some palm fruits and a caterpillar. Another very tasty maggots, but this is not the season.

23

But let's go mushrooms. Something like our experience.

24

Pygmy. Those famous "forest pygmies" in the CARs, as indeed, throughout Africa, are almost gone. Pygmy culture and traditions are fading. New life slowly penetrates into their life, dissolving in itself the way of life of the smallest people on the planet. Now the real life of the pygmies is more a tourist attraction.

25

Pygmies are considered the most not bloodthirsty hunters. They never hunt for the sake of hunting, they never kill animals for the sake of the desire to kill, they never store meat for future use. They don’t even bring a dead animal to the village, but they butcher, cook and eat right on the spot, calling all the villagers to eat. In fishing, pygmies often use poisons, “lulling” fish with special herbs.The fish floats to the surface of the reservoir, after which it can be collected by hand. Pygmies usually take only the necessary amount of fish, and all the “extra” after a while comes to its senses and swims away.

This pygmies show their dances.

28

After the presentation, they get cigarettes and cookies.

29

In the CARA live in poverty. There are almost no cars on the roads, and if there is, then the car is loaded to the maximum with people and cargo.

30

The usual thing. It still rides somehow. Amazing.

31

Sometimes cars break down.

32

Cars too heavy.

33

Military rides on pickups.

34

City center. Beauty.

Local feature - a wagon with a tree. Such carts on all roads. A small cart is loaded with logs and rolled into wood processing plants. Then the tree is sold. I did not meet timber trucks in the country, everything was done manually.

38

And this is the best restaurant in the city. Snails with beer are served here. Snails cost 15 dollars and for some reason without a shell. This is my lunch. After lunch, I decided to call at the Russian embassy, ​​which, as it turned out, was working. On the telephone, the consul said that they had lunch and if I really wanted to talk to him, I could come in the evening. Nobody opened the gate. So I did not set foot on the Russian land in the CAR.

39

I went to a local orphanage for orphans. Here they live.

40

This is school.

41

Immediately children stuck to me, grabbed my hands, started hugging and saying that I was their dad, asked to take them away. I am a good man, I went immediately to them for gifts. Toys, unfortunately, were not sold anywhere, they had to buy sweets, cookies and chocolate.

42

When I arrived, the girls had already changed into their best dresses. See what a sweetheart. She immediately grabbed my hand and said that she would not let go anywhere. I already wanted to burst into tears and began to think about how I would bring her home. But the girl saw the chocolate, took it, waved her hand and went to eat. Dad was no longer needed.
