Albino baby girl and her Mumuhuila tribe mother by Eric Lafforgue, Angola #people #faces #africa - Carefully selected by GORGONIA www.gorgonia.it
This mwila tribewoman was in Hale and came to me, showing a blue cap coming out from her clothes. i first did not understood there was a baby under this cap. Then she opened her clothes to let appear this albino baby girl. She had some little dreadlocks and was incredibly white. The mother was proud to pause for the picture and discovered the magic of polaroid! I have seen many albinos people in Angola, in the tribes. They are mainly in very bad health, as the sun is very hot there... Perhaps the most moving picture i ever took as the future of this albino baby is not the happiest you can get in this remote area of Africa. Mwila (or Mwela, Mumuhuila, or Muhuila) women are famous for their very special hairstyles. Hairstyles are very important and meaningful in Mwila culture. Women coat their hair with a red paste called, oncula, which is made of crushed red stone. They also put a mix of oil, crushed tree bark, dried cow dung and herbs on their hair. Besides they decorate their hairstyle with beads, cauri shells (real or plastic ones) and even dried food. Shaving the forehead is considered as a sign of beauty. The plaits, which look like dreadlocks, are called nontombi and have a precise meaning. Women or girls usually have 4 or 6 nontombi, but when they only have 3 it means that someone died in their family. Mwila Women are also famous for their necklaces, which are central and meaningful as for each period of their life corresponds a specific type of necklace. Young girls wear necklaces, heavy red made with beads covered with a mix of soil land latex. Later girls wear yellow necklaces called, Vikeka, made with wicker covered with earth. They keep until their wedding which can last 4 years. When married they start to wear a set of stacked up bead necklaces, called Vilanda. Women never take their necklace off and have to sleep with it. They also use headrests to protect their hairstyles. However, more and more men and women dress in a western way, because people make fun of them when they go to markets. Women sometimes walk 50 kilometers to sell goods in Huila market. Mwila rarely eat meat, they rather eat porridge, corn, chicken, honey and milk. They kill their cattle only on special occasions. Mwila are not allowed to mention people’s name in public. © Eric Lafforgue www.ericlafforgue.com

Sempervivum Plant - Calcareum A pretty alpine plant. Spreading mats of fleshy rosettes. Amongst the easiest of plants to grow, they will tolerate heat, drought and neglect and still manage to thrive! Alpines are a range of plants that have their origins in alpine, mountainous climates. They can be grown in patio containers, an old sink, between paving stones, in dry-stone walls or in a rockery - so are perfect for small, modern gardens, patios or balconies. Now this maybe I can grow!

I, for one am much too familiar with rain from my childhood(0-12) in London, here in Florida the rain isn't quite the same, over here the rain isn't constant and the whole time it will be sunny but that is so different from England. I don't know whether I miss it or not really :3 Sorry to bore you all with my life stories :D
