This is about the people living in the mountains around Kilembe village, in Uganda. It is in the Rwenzori mountains, which make the border between Uganda and Democratic Republic of the Congo. This mountains reach heights up to 5,109 metres (16,762 ft). The highest Rwenzori peaks are permanently snow-capped.
I don’t know where to start… her clothes, her hat, the way she is carrying the stuff with her head, her beautiful face… She was amazing, one of the most beautiful African grandmas I have ever seen, and she was very cheerful shy, really cute. This is the kind of people you could see living in the mountains around Kilembe.
This man lived in the middle of this steep mountains. To get to his house it was necessary to go up more than an hour by a steep slope. This man was all smiles, all joy, and apparently he loved to appear in the photos, because he was calling me all the time to take different photos of him doing different stuff, him with his family, him holding his grandsons… He had a rudimentary mud house where he lived with his family and around which he had some coffee plants and banana plantations.
That day I was walking around with a guy working as a community guide, who was explaining to the people we met that the money that I had paid ($10 USD) went to the local school. Maybe that is why everyone received me very kindly. Indeed, this photo was taken on the way back, going down the mountain. I stopped again in their house when I saw those colourful coffee beans, and when they saw me taking a photo the man called his grandsons and they quickly went to the beans and crouched down pretending to do something. But they were not doing anything! It was just for my photo! I thought it was extremely funny and sweet. I never ask people to do anything for me, maybe just ask them to please continue doing whatever they were doing when I arrived.
