Photo of the week: Wood Worker in Arusha, Tanzania

Man carving wooden sculptures at a market in Arusha, Tanzania

This week’s travel photo is of a wood worker at the Curio Market in Arusha, Tanzania. The Curio Market was interesting to explore, but the constant nagging from the shop owners got a bit annoying after a while. This interesting fellow however didn’t hassle me to buy a thing, and instead he told me about his form of art, which are these carved wooden sculptures. If you want something authentic to take home from your travels in Tanzania, this would be an ideal souvenir.
