Western Africa (northern section): Their People

Challenge #54 in the around the world in 80 ways series. Hosted by santamonica812.
Challenge has finished
As we move (roughly) south thru Africa, the last week's and this week's challenge will cover the following LONG list of countries: [1] Gambia; [2] Senegal; [3] Guinea Bissau; [4] Guinea; [5] Sierra Leone; [6] Liberia; [7] Cote d'Ivory; [8] Burkina Faso; [9] Ghana; [10] Togo; [11] Benin; and [12] Nigeria. It is my sense that very few people have been to many/all of these countries, so I am uncertain as to if we'll hit the 35-entry maximum. If we do, then I'll probably add more spaces, so everyone who wants can enter. Entrants are required to (1) vote for each other entry, (2) read the comments (if any) below this challenge, in case I or other entrants post with Rules questions or clarifications, and (3) follow each of the challenge rules...including voting WITHIN THE FIRST SIX DAYS of the challenge.

In a village in the remote woods of Cantahez in Guinea-Bisssau.The children hardly had seen white people, some run away crying to their mothers.But curiosity was stonger and they looked full of wonder at the pictures creating a first contact.
