During a safari through Tanzania, we stopped at this little village at Lake Victoria. The mayor himself gave us a tour through the village and being the only white people, we were quite the entertainment for the locals. Coming at the harbor side, we saw how the locals worked in simple conditions. Then this cute boy came speeding past us playing with this big tire, having the time of his life. And it reminded us of how simple their lives are, no luxury, but all of them had a smile on their face and enjoying one day at the time.

Location: Musoma, Tanzania
