Mamou Town

What a lot of cobblers .. and happy ones too !!

Hundreds of shoppers in the open markets .. the railway station in the background right.

10 minutes of coercion from the other ladies in the covered market .. finally convinced the very shy lady in the centre to let me photograph her traditional and beautiful hairstyle.

In close-up, the intricately platted and combed hair, the coin headband and the
gleeful smiles on the faces of all .. apart from our "victim" .. can be appreciated !!
