Jean Armel, 29, in Allahteresekro, a village about three hours north of Abidjan, Ivory Coast. He was excited to learn that the Red Sox, after decades of coming up short, had won two World Series in the last ten years. “Champions!” he cried out to his friends. The flag, bicycle tire, etc, are helping weigh down a tarp that provides cover from the sun as he and his friends pass the time playing games and drinking moonshine. He offered me a swig. I took a quick smell and declined. Photo by @austin_merrill. January 2013. #ivorycoast #cotedivoire #abidjan #flag #americanflag #bicycle #moonshine #boston #redsox #baseball #bostonredsox #africa
