I took this photo while traveling in West Africa. Africans have never had to copy anyones culture, most cultures copy Africans, because all people come from Africa. Beads and Bead- making have a long history in Africa. Beads have been made by indigenous Africans for thousands of years. In ancient times, Egyptians, Greeks, and Indians established trading bases in East Africa and eventually the Arabs invaded in the eighth century and established trade routes with the wealthy kingdom of Ghana in modern-day Mauritania. The Arabs brought glass beads to the Niger Delta to trade for gold and other goods.
A sabedoria não vem automaticamente com a idade. Nada vem - exceto rugas. É verdade, alguns vinhos melhoram com o tempo, mas apenas se as uvas eram boas em primeiro lugar. - Abigail Van Buren #modelforfun -
