Himba Boy with Toy

This fence marks the perimeter of a Himba village in Namibia.  I spotted this young boy quite a ways outside the fence, pushing a wheeled toy which appeared to be a car made out of wire.

The Himba men take their cattle and goats miles away from the village to graze them, leaving the women and young children in the village.

As you can see from the image above, there is no grazing nearby, at least when I was there towards the end of the dry season.

But the hard-packed sand and clay makes a great surface on which to push a wheeled toy!
