This little girl's mother wanted her to come out of their house and see the visitors. When we first got there, she just had some tears silently falling, but as more white people appeared, her tears turned into wails. We motioned to the mother that she should let her go back in her house. We didn't want to cause her such distress, but clearly seeing so many white people was out of her comfort zone.
We were invited to enter the house of the chief of the village and greet him.
