 Saturday 21 May 2016
While we were waiting for some Elders in Kenema to give them some doxy, we saw this man weaving cloth.  He let us take his picture.  It is a heavy fabric and he makes hammocks out of it. 

This man was sewing outside his shop on the street.  It was a pedal sewing machine.  Most people here do not have electricity.  I talked to him and he was making a dress that you can see there.  I asked if I could take his picture and then he asked me for money.  I told him I didn't have any, and I didn't.  They often ask for money.  It is hard not to give it to them, but if you give it to one then you have to give it to all and we can't do that.
