Edit: the original article seems to have gone, but this video shows the process
I stumbled across this article today – about getting a game together in Burundi. It reminded me so much of the children Phil and I saw all the way through Asia on our way to Korea. They would use anything to improve their football skills – we often saw children playing keep-up at the side of the road with balls made from tightly knotted herbs. Though we got no pictures of them (our driver wasn’t too keen on stopping for anything, even other traffic!) my memories are still vivid. So check out Henri’s photo-story for another example of footballing ingenuity.
