Youth of the world

The best thing about travelling in Africa is the kids. Wherever you go, there are lots and lots of them, and they are always very excited to meet a foreigner. They don't get much attention from adults, so they are thrilled if you take time to play with them, or ask them questions, or chase them around. Sometimes the younger ones get scared, and cry, and then the older ones laugh at the younger ones crying. Its great fun. Also, African kids are never spoiled -- you never hear them whine.

What's not to love? Look at these adorable youngsters I met at the Islamic school in the town of Ede, where I spent the Easter weekend with my friend Tope and his family.
