Soccer goal posts at Chumisa Primary School in Khayelitsha -
All across the Cape Flats we played soccer with narrow posts like these and tennis balls. I wonder if this happens across the continent?

Love the market hustle in N'Zerekore, Guinea. As I walked by one woman vendor she asked if I wanted to buy lettuce, and I said 'Non, Merci. "Merci n'a pas des vitamines." (There are no vitamins in 'Thanks.'), she quickly shot back.
So I bought two onions I did not need from her, since she made me laugh. Photo by Ricci Shryock @ricci_s #everydayafrica #everydayeverywhere #markets #guinea #streetphotography #ricci_s

Batulo Abdala, a refugee from Somalia, makes bread in a small kitchen in Kakuma refugee camp. President Donald Trump's travel ban and its legal challenges have caused much anxiety and confusion in the Kenyan refugee camps of Kakuma and Dadaab, where those slated for resettlement in the United States are unsure of their futures.

I took this picture of Mutua Matheka (@truthslinger) earlier this week while hanging out with him and the rest of the Unscrambling Africa crew.

The scramble and partition of Africa in the 1880’s and 90’s totally interfered with Africa’s progress – its social and economic life. Over a century later, we still live and feel the effects of this partition especially in the separation of people on the continent. It’s hard for Africans to travel within the continent and so it’s hard to have information and experience of what life and people are like in different countries.
Unscrambling Africa is a project that seeks to ‘discover’ urban areas all over the continent. Right now they are on a trip spanning 13 cities in 10 countries, and that brought them all the way from Nairobi down to Cape Town.
