    gorgeous johnjohn!!!! pity it got bumped out of "things we carry" theme . it is common place in africa for herdsmen to walk with their instruments and sometimes even a radio, perhaps it is not so common an item to travel with overseas. however one often sees american photos with people carring their guitars and this seems acceptable. one never can tell but its a very beautiful shot and you will find a theme to put it in one day!
