This Open Sore of the World

"All I can add in my solitude is may Heaven’s rich blessings come down to everyone, American, English, or Turk, who will help heal this open sore of the world.” David Livingstone.

























Wangwana and Jemadar of a Zanzibari caravan.











This fellow is based on Joseph Thomson's description of a Zanzibari headman in his expedition, who wore Arab garb and carried a large 'zulu-like' shield.
