See Photos that will always remind us about village and how time flies
Growing up in the distant villages in the south Eastern Nigeria, these photos conjure images of sweet memories and absences and time when life was innocence and sweet.
We would always pick ripe palm fruits and roast them in the embers beside the tripods. When they had softened, we would eat them and use teeth to break the nuts.
Sometimes we would roast and squeeze juice out of them to make palm oil. The palm oil is always fresh and devoid of any additional stuff or chemical like the present palm oil.
Sometimes we would sell them and make profits to pay for our school fees. Our school fees then was 10 naira or 15 naira. These things our old now. How time flies.
The pot was everything to us: Refrigerator, reservation for palm wine and could be use to fetch water.
There are ones we put outside close to the Zinc so that rain will be pouring into them. There are ones we would put inside for drinking. There are ones we would use to fetch water from the stream or river.
These photos remind me of home. It's been long I have been there.
