Camping with Pygmies

Back to Search Results

It took six trips to just get a few relaxed photographs.  It was like I was from Mars... They were constantly staring at me.  I made the mistake in one of the hunting camps (A full days walk from the road) of taking off my shirt in the middle of the camp.  Somehow I knew it was the wrong thing to do, but they were all half-naked and I thought: "What the Hell?"  But the minute I took off my shirt 70 Pygmies all screamed out at the same time... too much paunchy middle aged white flesh for folks who had never seen that before.
