Life in the village

I took these photos when I visited our former house maid and garden worker Rose-Mary and Joseph Tembo. They live just a short walk from the farm in a little house that they have built with their own hands. In the village life is simple, people have the necessities but no luxuries. Yet people seem happy and perhaps it’s the scaled down living that allows them to enjoy life in a different way.
