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.
