The Ship Builders of Tanzania

I took this photo in Tanzania of a man building a fishing boat on the shore. There were hundreds of ship builders on the Tanzania coast waiting for work in Poverty. Men were happy to work as a Ship Builder into there late 80's if they were able and could find work. Poverty seems to bring people closer together as they depend on one another for survival in third world countries.
