A Tuareg Girl: The Tuareg are a Berber people with a traditionally nomadic pastoralist lifestyle. Most Tuareg live in the Saharan parts of Niger and Mali but, being nomadic, there is constant movement across national borders, and small groups of Tuareg are also found in southeastern Algeria, southwestern Libya and northern Burkina Faso, and a small community in northern Nigeria.

“And I'll dance with you in Vienna, I'll be wearing a river's disguise. The hyacinth wild on my shoulder my mouth on the dew of your thighs. And I'll bury my soul in a scrapbook, with the photographs there and the moss. And I'll yield to the flood of your beauty, my cheap violin and my cross.” ― Leonard Cohen, Stranger Music: Selected Poems and Songs

A Mariachi's silver botonadura.
Mariam Tia gave birth to her daughter Fakao (shorthand for "bombs are dropping") in a cave in Sudan's Nuba Mountains by herself after rebels invaded her village and shot her husband dead. She's got incredible strength, but she needs world leaders to help stop the government from bombing and starving people there! Read @Nicholas Kristof's column about her.
