Greetings All,

Picture is Dr. Zachee Denis Bitjaa Kody and Paul Bodnar accepting a Traditional African Blessing from the elder of the Bahanga tribe in the Southern Cameroon district, West Africa.

Not for the faint of heart, the blessing involves a tribal ceremony, eating ashes from the ancestors mixed with dirt from sacred ground.

This blessing means all of their ancestors "have your back" in life.

Truly,

Paul Bodnar
Crocodile Wildlife Conservationist
