Photographer's Note

After a difficult journey I reached Tapeta, where I had lived 30 years ago. The town was destroyed during the civil war. It rained off and on as I looked around the middle of town. This section of the village had a number of thriving stores, it was the downtown. Now vegetation has taken over and the stores will need to be rebuilt to be used again.

I took this photo of some older children as they were walking through town. They probably have minimal education as the schools were destoyed and teachers hadn't been paid in years. There are few opportunities this far upcountry. Even farming is difficult.
