Sweet and strong – African kids don’t cry?!

As sweet and as strong the one puppy seems to be, so are the African babies and kids generally. The little ones are tight on the back of their Mums or older brothers or sisters. Wrapped in colourful cloths. The bigger ones walk around – sometimes playing with wheels or selfmade toys but often enough helping in the housekeeping/ collecting water.

Remarkable is not only the amount of kids you see around, but also the fact that you never hear them whining, moaning, complaining or screaming. Nor do you see tired or annoyed parents. African kids don’t cry?! People tend to take things easy.
