Photographer's Note

An old woman taking a rest during a village festival in central Lesotho in early 1984. I visited the little mountainous kingdom, completely surrounded by the republic of South Africa, during a long tour through southern Africa doing freelance-stories. Being temporarily out of work, I preferred to spend the winter in Africa rather than staying home on the dole. I think I made a wise choice.
By the way, if anyone is puzzled by why the woman is wearing a woolen hat and wrapping herself in a blanket, it's because Lesotho is situated at such a high altitude that it can get quite cold.
This was scanned from a Kodachrome slide.
