Kaga Bandoro, Central African Republic (CAR). Children under a cover of palm leaves are drumming on dried gourds. With the sound they try to imitate the drumming of heavy rain on the soil. The monsoon is about to arrive and they trick huge termites in coming up from their holes. The emerging insects are caught before they can fly away. They are collected in bowls. They will be used for dinner..The kids catch the occasional escapees in midflight and eat them right away. They provide a healthy and tasty snack. .
