Brushing a Swamp

Taken near the village of Tokpombu this farmer prepares his swamp for the planting of rice. The Mende preferred planting their rice on the upland as they felt the swamps were cold - they certainly were damp.

Hi Chad,
I enjoy your blog and I love your photographs. I am actually doing a project on Sierra Leone.( I am an illustrator) I was wondering did you get a chance to speak with the Mende people?-Danielle McManus
