Five boys of Asmara


Asmara - five, originally uploaded by CharlesFred.

Here are five young Eritreans, photographed near the railway station one evening in Asmara. They look very happy, but one has to be concerned about their future underneath one of East Africa's bad dictators, Mr Afwerki, cousin of sworn enemy Mr Meles of Ethiopia.

The situation in Eritrea was bad enough 16 months ago when we were there, and I imagine that they have only got worse. Anyway, I found a whole load of photos from Eritrea, which due to the slow speeds of internet obviously never made it onto flickr or the blog, so I spent this afternoon editing them and uploading them, record of how it was when we were there.
