Tribute to my brother-in-law, the model maker

Unfortunately, since my past post, my brother-in-law (the same person who helped me with the avocado tree) , Ndoumbe Ellong, passed away suddenly, and far too young. Rather than delve into his life, I'd like to put up a few photos of his workmanship, as he was a talented model maker, whether for architectural models or using traditional materials.


  1. Thses pictures are very nice and very interesting. Even if we see them in other continents, we feel feel in Africa, in rural villages!

  2. Diane, you know very well that I love your blog, but also find that many of these posts deserve to be developped into short stories... Keep that in mind!
