Skatepark in Kampala, East Africa
Good to see the locals in Kampala, Uganda have built their own skatepark. The photo is from a series by Yann Gross. I saw a few kids with boards in Ghana when I was there, never saw where they skated though.
In other skateboard news: Skateparks Go Green, apparently.
Lagos Shake album cover
Just bought Lagos Shake, an album of Tony Allen remixes. I’ve only given it one listen so this isn’t an album review, more of an excuse to blog about the album cover. Puts those pups you see cruising around with their bull terriers look distinctly pathetic. I’m glad I haven’t bumped into this guy around Camberwell after the pub.
