Villagers crossing a knee-deep river in Wamba, my local government area, Nassarawa State. –Musa Danjuma, from Nassarawa State, Nigeria.
Thanks to Musa Danjuma, an indigene of Nassarawa State in north-central Nigeria for sending us this beautiful picture of locals crossing a river high in the rugged mountains of Wamba area. This is the first entry we received since we announced this project and we are glad to post it. One would wonder how fearless these locals are, to enter a river this deep and wide, and flowing this fast, even with load on their head. However, this illustrates a part of the interesting everyday rustic village life in remote places in Nigeria. The picture also shows a stream channel with possible potentials for white-water rafting, which holds a great tourism potential for the state.
