Palm Leaf and Hands Detail

On our first trip in early 2009 I photographed this Mursi kid holding a leaf frond on the banks of the Omo River.  The frond is used as a chair... something to sit on.  And the boat in the background is the only boat we saw on the river during an extensive six week transect from the highlands where the river starts all the way down to Kenya where the river dumps into Lake Turkana.
