A boy and his fruit

Shortly after we crossed the Senegambian border, on our route north to Gambia's camplital Banjul, we saw a red costumed figure on the roof of a building. We stopped to look and the figure lept off the roof and came towards us. Its love of altitude was then proven again as it jumped onto the roof of our vehicle and refused to come down. It held machetes, so we held our distance.

We learned that the figure was a mask / masquerade that was protecting Gambian boys who had just been through an initiation / circumcision and we resting in the forest for a number of days before returning home. We were able to follow the red mask into the forest and visit with the boys - and their guardian older siblings/cousins - and provide them with a donation to assist with their forthcoming meals.

[I am not sure of the name of the village but it was on the Busura-Marakissa-Brikama route]
