Photographer's Note

"No Barbies no fun ?...Wrong.
In the streets of Bolama
Using brains...having fun."...(take 2)

This kids are true artists,with this amazing toys.
Using wire pieces they create true amusement art.


Bolama is a sector of the region of the same name, in the province of the South, the Guinea-Bissau. The sector has headquarters in the city of the same name, located in the homonym island. It occurred to old council bred in 1871 for the Portuguese. Bolama was raised to the category of city in 1913 and was the capital of the old Portuguese Guinea up to 1941.(Wiki)

Is population lives essentially of fishing,hunting, the cashew, and the agriculture of subsistence.Here I did not find the hunger and the misery that I had seen in the east in 1991.

The development missions allow a more tranquil contact with the people, and the intervention most solid in basic aspects of the formation and sanitary improvement
The major problems I found here were related with the poverty, the lack of medical supplies , the formation of the technician and the organization of the health cares.
