This picture was taken outside of my village, Meri, in the extreme north region of Cameroon. My friend Abel and I went to visit his sister who lived en brosse (in the bush) in a very small community. I helped his sister piler, pound, millet and shell peanuts. This is a picture of his sister and me using the pilar to pound millet. In the background of the photo her neighbors are holding a bowl of peanuts. This picture was taken in 2010.
