A Little Background On Juda Ngwenya's Photo - Burkina Faso

Burkina Faso A little background on Juda Ngwenya's photo, which was taken in February of 1998. When Burkina Faso hosted AFCON in 1998, Juda took a number of photos of women on mopeds delivering strawberries to restaurants all over the capital, Ouagadougou.

The first 2 photos shown here are from the same month (photo 1 Feb 27th 1998 & photo 2 Feb 6th 1998) and were taken by Juda Ngwenya. The original captions state that the women were carrying strawberries.

The next 2 photos are more recent (2013 (via stephinghana) & 2015 via saran koly, respectively) and show closeups of women selling strawberries in Burkina Faso. The country has produced strawberries since the late 1970s, and now strawberries produced in Burkina Faso are appreciated for their aroma, texture, and sweetness.
