Togo Betammariba Girl Portrait chosen for African Tuesday Top 5

Thanks to the guys from African Tuesday on Google+ who have picked another one of my submissions as their Top 5 favorite pic of the week (June 2nd).

The picture was taken somewhere in north Togo and portraits one of the Batammariba girls that was following around the house that we were allowed to view. The mud tower houses are called Takienta and are symbolic for this region in Togo and neighboring Benin.

Here is the Togo Betammariba girl pic chosen by Africantuesday:
