Patigi 2

We were made very welcome in the village. The people speak Nupi which is a different language from Yoruba. We had an interpretor! Some of the children followed us and as soon as they got to the river Niger they jumped in and were swimming like little fishes! It is extremely deep! The fish in the photo has poison in the sharp spikes! There are more fish in the rainy season as they like to hide in the reeds.
 In this photo you can see the canoe. It has crossed the river to Niger state to gather food for the cattle this side of the river. In the rainy season everyone travels by canoe. They wanted us to stay longer and go across the river but sadly we did not have enough time.

 I love the cattle. I aske how much one cost!
