I'd like to thank Lauren Mong who recently submitted her photos to this site. Lauren spent 8 months in Ghana (West Africa) during 2005, stationed at a small mission in the north of the country. She lived in a little village called Bunbonayili much as the local people did. Her home was a mud hut; she ate local food; gathered water; and did her washing by hand alongside the local women.
Lauren said it was an unforgettable experience and she managed to capture the beauty of the people and the landscape in these wonderful images.
