Random shots from the road and river…West Africa

We came across this scene when we were walking down the main street in the town of Bansang, where we were taking a couple of days well-deserved off from the River Gambia Expedition. The dog and the donkey looked so comfortable together – or maybe the donkey was so tired (they work those creatures hard), he would have rested his head on a hippo, if it had been the only thing there.
