Rice Farm on the road to Panguma (from Kenema)
Taken in 1969-70 when we traveled from Kenema to Panguma for the dedication of the refurbished Catholic Mission hospital there. Here upland rice grows in a typical Mende rice farm. In the middle portion is a young man (in red) who most probably attended the family rice. His farm house - more a shed than a house - is seen to the right.
