Musee National du Niger - The National Museum of Niger 2

One of the artisan displays of cotton weavers and circular mud-block housing.

Senegalese Tie-dye and Batik

Some of the many different artistic designs on sale.

My new friends a Lioness and Hyena in their far from ideal housing conditions.
This is the best picture I could get with the two of them together, to have taken a clearer picture would have meant using the camera flash. But their friendliness towards me and the mutual trust which had quickly built up between two wild animals and a white stranger, meant that no way would I have risked upsetting them by using a flash.
They were two simply amazing and very gentle friends.
