I instantly liked this woman.  Even without words (that were understood anyway) we both sat there smiling at each other.  It felt completely natural and comfortable.

She is pregnant, so stays at home to look after the other young children with the help of a village elder.

This image is part of a series I did on Himba Women, the first is here: Himba Women I.
