  • Main street of Areka town in Bolosso Sorie

    Areka is a small settlement nestled amongst green fields and hills. It's the administrative capital of Bolosso Sorie and attracts a crowd of people on a market day. The main street is a dusty, unmade up affair bustling with people buying and selling produce. There is a healthy population of street goats and street cows and chickens that offer ever present obstacles to movement as they stand placidly in the middle of the road chewing old papers or the odd plastic bag.
