Through the Pongo de Manique

We reached the Pongo de Manique at dusk, which was frustrating photogenically, but I shot with the most light sensitive old analogue video which adds a foreboding mystique to the views. Towards the end of the blog we settled in on the shores of the river on a sandbank to camp for the night in our tents.

In the morning by the time we woke up, some of the women were gutting fish the men had caught.
